Malaysian Wood Expo Planned for November

The Malaysian Timber Council (MTC) and Pablo Publishing Pte Ltd are staging a Malaysian Wood Expo (MWE) from November 19-21.

The event, which will be held at the Putra World Trade Centre in Kuala Lumpur, is endorsed by the Ministry of Primary Industries of Malaysia, as well as the Malaysian Timber Industry Board (MTIB), Malaysian Wood Industries Association (MWIA), the Timber Exporters’ Association Of Malaysia (TEAM), the Malaysian Panel-Products Manufacturers’ Association (MPMA), the Malaysian Furniture Council (MFC), the Malaysian Wood Moulding & Joinery Council (MWMJC), the Association of Malaysian Bumiputra Timber and Furniture Entrepreneurs (PEKA), the American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC) and French Timber.

The organisers say the expo will bring together key decision makers and technology experts and promises “the latest timber innovation, knowledge and technologies”.

In conjunction with the MWE 2019, MTC is also organising its second Overseas Suppliers-Malaysian Importers/Manufacturers Exchange Programme on November 20.

The objective of this programme is to facilitate the Malaysian timber industry in sourcing for timber raw materials from off-shore by inviting overseas suppliers to participate in business-to-business sessions with potential buyers/importers in Malaysia.
