Govt helps small timber product firms

Small-scale businesses that work with wood, such as handicraft producers in Bali and furniture makers in Jepara, East Java, will be able to get their products certified now that the government is subsidizing those who join its certification program.

The government introduced the SVLK in 2010 as part of a move to curb rampant illegal logging in the country. The SVLK provides Indonesian producers greater access to the global market as it guarantees buyers that the wood and wood-based products originate from legal practices and are sourced in an environmentally friendly manner. The SVLK also bears more significance because Indonesia signed an agreement on legal timber trade with the European Union in May 2011.
