Forestry and timber industry in Yugoslavia in 1987
Research subject and fields:
After a certain stagnation in production and exports on the first half-year a recovery was expected, particularly during the fall months. It has been a regular event in previous years. However, there was no recovery in production and the reasons were numerous. As usual, the blame was put on some other side, mostly on the measures that were beyond the control of the branch of business, such as bad weather condition or systemic measures that were unpredictable and often changed. There was noted a fall on forest production, mechanical processing and finishing of timber. Development varied among the regions. Export results, however, were satisfactory since the total export value was by 5.3 % higher than in 1986. In this, the export into the countries with hard currency payments was increased by 17.6 % and into the countries with cleaving account payments was reduced by 19.5 %.
