Chair: Keith Fryer - Timber Trade Federation
CEI-Bois Coordination: Margherita Miceli
The main aim of the Trade WG is to ensure a level-playing field for the Woodworking Industries both for their wood raw material procurement and their sales of semi-finished and finished wood-based products. This means promoting the Free But Fair Trade principle. Furthermore, both on the internal and the external EU market, the WG intends to maintain and improve standards while lowering operating costs and increasing efficiency.
Besides addressing any emerging trade issue, including Non-Tariff Barriers, this WG also tries to define a long-term trade strategy for CEI-Bois.
