Dr. Jimmy Thomas, Assistant Director of Technical Services, moderated the seminar, and Mr. Ritesh Kumar, Assistant Director of Business Development, concluded it.
The Country Director for Canadian Wood, Mr. Pranesh Chhibber, commented on the use of wood in manufacturing as follows-
"Wood industry in India was highly fragmented and unorganized. Fortunately, things are evolving now at a fast pace and it's getting more organized as people have become conscious of the application of legally harvested wood from certified forests. As of today, the wood industry is in the process of moving from a small and medium scale to an organized manufacturing sector. It will probably take another 5-10 years for the industry to commence on its own and be able to compete with other large furniture manufacturing nations such as China and Malaysia. It requires a catalyst from the government to help the industry and SOPs prepare the industry to create world-class cost-effective products. India has the talent and workforce to deliver, all it requires is a bit of catalyst to make this happen."
