Update on Confor activity after Brexit

8 August 2016

CONFOR Chief Executive Stuart Goodall has updated members on the next steps to be taken as the forestry and timber sector continues to react to the Brexit vote.

In an email to all members, Mr Goodall describes the establishment of several work-streams designed to help Confor and its members shape the future to ensure the full potential of forestry and timber in the UK can be realised. The work-streams will lead to recommendations which will form the basis of a report on how the sector can thrive in a post-Brexit world - and will also be used as the basis for Confor's submission to the EFRA inquiry into forestry.
