The world is in global economic crisis where all exports and imports slow downed in the first two months of 2009. In Malaysia there was a 30% drop of Sarawak logs and timber products exports compared to the same period in 2008 (NST April 15, 2009). All the countries in the world witnessed a slow down of wood products exports. A notable exception is the Italian furniture sector which appears to be more resilient (ITTO MIS 16-30 April 2009).
