The Timber Industry

The Malaysian states of Sarawak and Sabah are the top producers of round logs in the world. Revenue from the export of logs and processed timber products contribute substantially to the state coffers. Major buyers of Malaysian timber are Japan, China, Vietnam,India,Thailand and the Middle East countries. This sector is also a major job provider although many of those working in the sawmills and plywood factories are foreign labour from Indonesia.
