New Target Markets for Forestry Technology from Central Europe—Opportunities Right on the Doorstep!

Information and Contact Platform for Manufacturers, Dealers and Forestry Contractors Interested in Exporting

Following the presentation of the economic area (forestry resources, forestry development status and goals, political and economic framework conditions) by the international forestry expert Daniel-Paul Dima from Finland, decision-makers from the most relevant potential target countries will highlight investment-relevant backgrounds and inform the audience about national forestry development strategies in their country.

Based on this, concrete findings and recommendations will be presented on short- and medium-term procurement demand.

These considerations will be rounded off by constructive reports on the experience of companies already active in the market, as well as a concluding speed-dating session, offering the immediate opportunity for business contact building.

The event will be held in English.
