Selling off forests is merely a cop out

I refer to Kevin Rajaratnam's letter of March 10 (State will gain from forestry privatisation). Surely it would be better to improve Coillte so that it too could be an impressive environmental organisation rather than sell it to the Swiss.

Where does such policy end? Do we sell the entire country because it has been badly managed or learn to run things properly ourselves?
