The forest industry does not believe that the strike will affect production activities, but it will nevertheless blemish the export-dependent industry’s reputation as a reliable supplier of goods.
In 2009, the forest industry employed more than 3,500 professional and managerial staff members, of whom almost 3,000 worked within the paper industry or in forestry.
