Export of Vietnamese timber and wooden product has increased year by year. In the period 2004-2008, on average, export turnover increased by 25.7% annually. However, in 2009, this figure fell to 8.2% due to the impact of the global economic crisis.

This paper analyses the set up of and participation in the supply chain of Vietnamese wooden product export enterprises.
