The Netherlands : Your Base For Malaysian Timber And Wood Products Exports To Europe
MTC HQ, Level 20, Menara PGRM 1, KL

The Netherlands remains an important entry point for Malaysian timber and wood related products to the European market. The presence of port of Rotterdam, Europe’s largest port and the numerous logistics companies specializing in handling forest related products ensure an efficient supply chain system to the rest of Europe. 

With the recent acceptance of the Malaysian Timber Certification Scheme by the Dutch government for its procurement policy coupled with the current robust growth of the European economy, the construction sector especially the residential and commercial segment foresees a healthy growth in the coming years.  Timber remains the preferred building material for the European market. 

Europe is an important export destination for Malaysian exporters and to remain competitive, it is essential to have  shorter delivery time and tailor-made products for the European customers. 

The Malaysian Timber Council together with the Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency (NFIA) have invited renowned speakers from the Netherlands  to share industry and market  insights on  the Netherlands and how to further grow your timber based  business in Europe. 

You are cordially invited to attend our half-day seminar to explore opportunities and take advantage of the numerous benefits and potential that the Netherlands has to offer.
