KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Timber Council (MTC) is targeting to achieve RM44 million in sales at the China International Furniture Expo (Furniture China), based on the sales success of its industry partners in the last two years.
This year, the exhibition will be held from Sept 12 to 15 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) in Pudong, Shanghai.
Last year, exhibitors recorded both confirmed and potential sales of RM40.03 million, and this is the third year that MTC is organising a group participation to Furniture China.
In 2016, exports of Malayia’s timber and timber-based products to China rose 3.7% to RM846.8 million.
Furniture remains the main export of Malaysian timber products to China in value terms, amounting to RM121.7 million which marked a 91% increase from the previous year. – Bernama
