(Ciudad de Panamá-ANPanamá) More and more consumers are demanding to know where their goods come from, so being able to maintain traceability and demonstrate that forest resources have a legal origin allows them access to the world’s best markets for export, said Bianca Frieda Morán, President of the Panamanian Exporters Association (APEX).


She added that Panama promotes legal trade in wood, while also respecting forest preservation. To oversee the export process, the Ministry of Environment (Miambiente) plays a role in inspecting wood transformation areas and verifying that the wood has reached the market through all legal channels, including forest registration, operational certification, export guides, sales invoices, among other processes.


According to the APEX president, thanks to the Legal Wood Network, the management and traceability of forest resources demonstrate their legal origin, promoting fair practices and trade where wood producers obtain a fair price. “There must be differentiation and recognition of the cost of generating legal wood,” Frieda emphasized.
