Historical Analysis of International Trade Flows in Forest Products - A Preliminary Paper

By A. Francescon


In this paper we outline some ideas on how to study the past behavior of the structure and dynamic changes in international flows of wood and wood products. We present some results of a share structure analysis carried out for three products and three years (Sawnwood, Pulp and Newsprint in 1971, 1975, and 1979) based on UN trade matrices as reported by importers. We also comment on the currently available FAO and UN data and their quality. This paper is a prelude to a detailed trade analysis for 13 products over the last two decades, which will be completed in the Forest Sector Project
