Forty years ago, China’s wood-based panel production accounted for almost zero (0.4%) of the world’s output. Today, 40 years later, China’s total production of wood-based panels has exceeded the total output of other countries in the world.
In the past 40 years of reform and opening-up, great changes have taken place in China’s wood-based panel industry. With very limited resources, it has met the needs of economic construction and people’s lives, alleviated the contradiction between supply and demand of wood resources shortage in China, effectively promoted the development of China’s ecological environment, and contributed to the development of the global ecological environment.
Forty years of struggle, we have become a big country of wood-based panel industry from a small country in the world. In order to move from a big wood-based panel country to a powerful one in the world, we are still facing many problems: upgrading of independent innovation capability of wood-based panel equipment, integration of industrialization and informatization, intelligent upgrading of control level; reaching advanced world level in energy consumption, material consumption and pollution emission of wood-based panel production, and forming a strong international competitiveness. China’s wood-based panel industry still needs to make unremitting efforts in the wood-based panel industry system.
In the past 40 years of reform and opening up, China’s wood-based panel industry has made brilliant achievements. In the process of becoming a powerful country in the world’s wood-based panel industry, we must have a better future. China’s wood-based panel industry is still on the road.
