  • Description

    A delegation from the Italian Federation of Timber Industrialists has been visiting the Ivory Coast to look into the possibility of importing more Ivory Coast timber.

    Italy is already the Ivory Coast's leading customer for timber but the Italians were looking at the possibility of importing types of tropical timber which have not been exported every much so far.

    Great interest was shown in the Ivory Coast's timber industry by the 14-member delegation on their visit which lasted from March 10th to March 17th.

    On Thursday (March 15) the Italians went to Bassam, 36 kilometres from the Ivory Coast capital of Abidjan, where they looked round the sawmills of the African Sawmill Company, the oldest in the Ivory Coast. It was established in 1913.
