*******www.gwm-tv**** - A report into the timber market in the Brazilian state of Pará has concluded that it is a decisive key to the area’s economy. The research, carried out by the Para Forestry Institute, said that the state’s forest sector revenues topped $4.46 billion US dollars in 2008. This accounted to 9.6 per cent of the state’s total GDD and, with 30,481 jobs, supported 3.6 per cent of its total employment. The report said that even though the state’s timber trade supported low value-added products, it remained a net exporter of timber products.
