EU and Indonesia sign deal on illegal timber

Date : 4th May 2011, Source : BBC Link to News Story

Indonesia and the European Union have finalised an agreement aimed at ending the trade in illegally-sourced wood. The agreement will mean that EU companies will only be able to import timber that is certified as complying with Indonesian environmental laws. The East Asian nation possesses some of the world's most lavish forests, which in turn support spectacular wildlife. The EU has concluded similar deals with four African countries, and Liberia is expected to follow suit next week.
