Chinese Engagement in the East and Southern African Timber Trade

Traffic published in February 2017 a major report titled "Overview of the Timber Trade in East and Southern Africa: National Perspectives and Regional Trade Linkages" by Kahana Lukumbuzya and Cassian Sianga.

The report covers numerous issues concerning the timber trade in east and southern Africa. China is the single most important importer of timber coming from this region. The report offers useful insights on China's role in this trade and the challenges faced by African exporting countries, especially the DRC, Zambia, Mozambique and Tanzania.
