Establishment of Electronic Timber Trading Platform in China
The Group worked closely with the Research Institute of Wood Industry of the Chinese Academy of Forestry to conduct the "Study of Standardization in the Timber Trading in China" in March 2008, in an effort to explore the feasibility of developing nation-wide electronic timber trading platform for timber industry that might solve the existing problems in the transaction flow such as over reliance on spot transaction, too many processes involved, high transaction cost and low transaction volume, etc. In October 2008, the subsidiary of the Group, Beijing Superb Summit Qianyuang Information Technology Co. Ltd gained the approval of the National Timber Industry Administration Office to establish the first timber electronic trading platform (CTEx) in China. The strategic meaning of CTEx is to facilitate the electronic timber trading in China under the guidance and support of the central government.
CTEx is a centralized, electronic trading platform for bulk timber products. Standardized timber raw materials, semi-finished timber products could be traded on electronic platform in accordance with market rules and regulations. Traders of the timber industry will be recruited as the members. Trading could be carried out by several modes, namely, spot transaction, public auction, forward trading. The Group will also form project companies with some regional timber trading markets to establish regional CTEx and supervised timber warehouses so as to achieve scale-efficiency. Our ultimate goal is to set up CTEx at the major timber import regions across the nation.
