Vietnam and the EU signed the Voluntary Partnership Agreement on Forest Law Enforcement, Governance, and Trade which will open widely the doors for Vietnamese wooden products to enter the EU’s market. Certainly, the prerequisite is that domestic timber enterprises actively join with farmers in the eco-afforestation chain, create a source of 100 percent clean wood materials, and achieve the Forest Stewardship Council certificate.
