The country profile of Suriname is online now. Suriname is considered a potential market for European traders. The amount of FSC-certified hectares is growing, with the support of the Sustainable Trade Initiative (IDH). Certified companies are eager to create new business opportunities, which is the reason why a delegation of European timber traders visited Suriname in November 2015. The trade mission was organized by ETTF and ESS, and supported by the European STTC.
