Guangxi Releases Three-Year action program for Guangxi’s Trillion-Dollar Forestry Industry (2023-2025)

Recently, the General Office of the People’s Government of the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region issued the “Guangxi Trillion Forestry Industry Three-Year Action Program (2023-2025)” (hereinafter referred to as the “Program”), which promotes the integrated development of primary, secondary and tertiary industries in Guangxi’s forestry sector, and, by 2025, strives for the total output value of Guangxi’s forestry industry to reach 1.3 trillion CNY. The content of the Program on forest land and timber is as follows:
Strengthening resource advantages and enhancing the supply capacity of high-quality timber. The region will further implement the “double-thousand” national reserve forest program, accelerate the large-scale management of forest land, the structural adjustment of tree species and the transformation of low-yield and inefficient forests, vigorously cultivate native tree species, precious tree species and medium- and large-diameter timber, and continuously improve forest reserves and timber production per unit area. By 2025, the use rate of good species of major afforestation trees in the region will reach 85 per cent, the area of commercial timber forests will remain above 125 million acres, the cumulative construction of national reserve forests will be above 20 million acres, and the annual supply of harvestable timber will be above 60 million cubic meters.
