Two specialists on the forest industry of the Russian Federation examine the balance between supply and demand for forest products within the Russian Far East in a survey of the region's forest resources. The focus is on the extent to which the resource is utilized relative to its potential, the ways in which it is processed, and the current level of exports. Forecasts are presented of longer-term economic harvest levels, estimated domestic demand for the region's wood fiber, net import-export balance, and requisite levels of capital investment. Coverage includes an assessment of contrasting prospects for forest-in-dustry development in the region's “northerntier” and “southerntier” (oblast/kray-level) subdivisions.
