Spanish timber imports stable at a low level

13.04.2015 − 

Spanish imports of lumber and timber products will probably stabilise this year at the lower level reached last year. This was the assessment given by AEIM, the association of Spanish timber importers and the timber industry, at its annual general meeting held in Madrid on 12 and 13 March. The Spanish industry is benefiting above all from greater competitiveness in the international arena, allowing it to increase its exports. In Spain, a growing rate of modernisation activity in existing buildings is generating correspondingly growing demand for construction timber. At the same time, however, there are practically no stimuli from the low level of residential building activity. According to information from Alberto Romero, secretary general of the AEIM, this year’s annual general meeting was attended by roughly 100 members and thus more company representatives than in previous years.
