Forestry and timber industry in the market economy

Research subject and fields:

This paper states that the market economy will gradually force every work organization to get free from the tutorship and excessive protective role of the state to perform business on its own risk and to confirm its business efficiency and its results only in setting face to face with the business competitors. The one having the products of better quality and less expensive ones shall maintain its position on the market In such a situation the only way out is to improve the production permanently and to cut down the costs. In order to estimate and reciprocally compare business results, it is necessary that the logs are manufactured, classified and filed by classes. On the basis of practical calculation, attention should be paid to considerable losses for forestry as well as for timber industry caused by the failure to comply with forest products standards. The volume of losses binds all professional and business people in forestry and timber industry to work on an organized basis on their elimination.
