Myanmar balances forestry exports with preservation

The forestry sector has been vitally important to Myanmar. When the country was isolated by sanctions, the selling of logs and wood helped bring in desperately needed hard currency. Exports of forestry products in 2011, the year political reforms began, broke $1bn. However, since the reforms began, much has changed. Myanmar, now open, is less in need of simple foreign currency inflows. It has other priorities. At the same time, increased engagement with foreign groups, companies and governments has led to a rise in the awareness of how to better manage natural resources.
