Imports of wood products totalled $8.7 million in September down just under 1% from the previous month. The corresponding improvement in the wood product trade balance was almost 11% in September 2016, ITTO reported.

Between January to September 2016 wood product exports totalled $1,742.5 million up 0.4% year on year.

Imports over the same period totalled $74.1 million and were 16% lower compared to the same period in 2015.

Despite the economic and political issues Brazil is facing exports values and the accumulated trade balance in 2016 are contributing to a recovery.

According to ABIMCI it is the decline in domestic building and construction that is hurting companies focused on domestic sales while the stronger U.S. dollar has helped exporters.
