18 PERSPECTIVES TRADE IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO DECLINE… The international trade of tropical timber products has been affected by: -Competition with other timber products (plantations); -Development of new competitive products and finishing materials; -Increase in the logistics costs for tropical timber; -Increase in transaction costs (local and international- EU FLEFT, United States’ Lacey Act, Australia’s Illegal Logging Act, etc); -Market access: barriers and impediments; -Lack of market promotion and product image -Reduction and restrictions on supply; -Lack of investments on technology developments to increase competitiveness.
19 PERSPECTIVES TROPICAL PLANTATION TIMBER IS AN ALTERNATIVE… There are successful tropical plantations that can enhance competitiveness of tropical timber products in the global market -Teak -Acacia -Eucalyptus -African Mahogany -Others Efforts are needed to maintain competitiveness : - Increase productivity of plantations and industrial operations - Develop and improve products performance

22 PERSPECTIVES LEARNING FROM OTHERS - The International Coffee Organization (established in 1963) Private Sector Consultative Board The Private Sector Consultative Board (PSCB) is an ICO body which provides a platform for the representatives of private sector organizations of producing and consuming countries. Established in 1999, it consults with and advises the Council on issues relevant to the coffee sector, either on request or on its own initiative. The PSCB comprises 16 leading industry representatives from producing and consuming countries, along with their alternates and advisers. It generally meets at the time of the International Coffee Council meetings in March and September each year and its Chairperson reports to the Council on the outcome of its meeting. At the meetings, PSCB representatives review a range of coffee issues including sustainability initiatives, food safety aspects, quality and coffee and health.representatives The PSCB has agreed that its main mission and objective should be to increase the world coffee market in value and volume. One of the constraints for increasing coffee consumption was the misconception that coffee is bad for your health held by part of the population. On the contrary, there is significant scientific information available on various positive health benefits associated with coffee drinking. www.ico.org
