Iceland delegation seeks wood suppliers

PORTLAND — Looking to develop a source of hardwoods for subsequent sale into the European Union, a delegation from Iceland will visit Maine on Monday, Jan. 5, and Tuesday, Jan. 6.

The Maine International Trade Center is coordinating the visit by representatives from Iceland’s private and public sectors. The visit will include visiting five hardwood processing mills in the state.

Officials from the state’s trade center pointed out that raw logs now are being exported from Maine to Iceland to be processed and finished and then exported to European markets. In addition to encouraging Iceland businesses to purchase processed hardwood logs from Maine, the visit also will include discussions regarding Maine’s aquaculture and commercial fishing industries.
