US lumber exporters are invited to join this results-oriented trade mission that connects US suppliers with Chinese buyers. Companies will participate in small group meetings, roundtable discussions with buyers, wholesale yard visits, and receptions with importers and manufacturers.

Participants will come away from this mission with pre-qualified business contacts and an improved understanding about the current market for US softwood lumber.

Event Detail :

Since 2009, the US-China Build Program activities have helped facilitate the sale of $441 million in reported US exports.

* Over $1.5 million in immediate sales were reported as a result of contacts made during the Fall 2015 China mission.Reported sales since then have surpassed $13 million.

Taicang is a major port for softwood lumber imports and home to a large number of importers and manufacturers. Chengdu is a major furniture manufacturing center and a key distribution center for Western China. A number of manufacturers on the coast have moved to Chengdu to take advantage of lower operating costs and supply the growing inland region. Chongqing is also a fast growing city and a growing market for lumber in Western China.
