In Brief: Coillte reports a rise in exports

FORESTRY group Coillte says that its products were exported to 32 countries in 2012, largely because of the growth in new markets for its wood-panel products. Countries including Bahrain, Lebanon, Mexico and South Africa have increased their imports of Coillte's products. Its main markets for panels remain the UK and Europe.

"Continued expansion into new markets demonstrates our commitment to seeking out new uses for the great wood fibre resource we manage," the company said.
