It is reported that The Ministries of Industry and Housing have developed an action plan to promote the production and use of green building materials. The aim is to increase the proportion and quality of green building materials and will focus on energy consumption in manufacturing and the emission of toxic airborne substances.

According to the plan more wooden building will be developed in the near future. The use of wooden structures will be promoted in public building such as schools, kindergartens, nursing homes and in landscaping. In addition, wooden rural housing construction will be promoted in existing and new community developments.

According to Liu Nengwen (President of China Timber & Wood Products Distribution Association), the China’s annual consumption of wood is about 500 Millions cubic meters and the wood supply deficit has been over 50%. At present, most of China’s logs and saw timbers are imported from foreign countries. With the Rapid development of Wooden building in China, more wood products are expected to import in the near future.
