Exporting Log is a Risky Business for Triggering Illegal Logging in Indonesia

Bogor, December 13, 2017. Illegal logging and timber smuggling may rise once again in Indonesia if the Ministry of Environment and Forestry proposal on log export approved. Kaoem Telapak and Independent Forest Monitoring Network strongly disagree with this proposal since it will obstruct the development of timber industry in the country.
Ministry of Environment and Forestry through its Secretary General, Bambang Hendroyono plans to open export for log, which have been banned for 16 years. Excess supply on logs is the reason behind this idea. While in fact, primary forestry industry in Indonesia still lack of raw log supply. The fulfilment or raw material for the primary forestry industry above 6,000 m3 during five years from 2013 to 2017 still have not reach 80% of the plan.
Indonesia banns log export in 2001 through a Ministerial Joint Decree by Ministry of Forestry and Ministry of Industry and Trading. It aims to tackle
rampant illegal logging and timber smuggling during that time.
