The foreign trade statistics published by the Swedish Forest Industries Federation show that the growth in exports to Asia was also higher than average at 26% to 213,600 m³.The growth in March compensated for the reductions in exports in January and February. At 3.15m m³, Sweden ultimately exported 4.7% more softwood lumber and planed products in the first quarter of 2015 than it did in the same period of last year.
