80 TONS TIMBER EXPORTED TO GREECE
Business | August 29, 2001, Wednesday // 00:00
More than 80 tons timber were exported through the Svilengrad customs, that manages a substantial amount of Bulgaria’s trade with Turkey and Greece. Only about 4,300 of these were exported to Turkey and the reason for that small quantity is considered to be the country’s financial crisis. 28 tons of timber went to Greece only in July. Most of the timber quantities were delivered immediately to the wood processing facilities in Komotini and Akritis, situated near the Bulgarian border. The high demand for timber in Greece was suspected to be one of the reasons for the huge arsons in the Standja and Rhodopes mountains. The police could not prove it, though.
