It takes more than 4 months to set up a wood processing plant. They made Trotman a fool.
Whatever they plan to make, curing the wood takes years.
Once again a government of Guyana is lacking in Business Knowledge.
So does the wood magically cure en route to India or China?
We need to find out their justification for shipping raw timber and processing it there. We should not prejudge as businesses will make decisions which are most profitable. Sometimes the "apparent" is not what it seems to the simple minded.
My guess, the logs are not processed right away-stockpiled. Alibaba, now sells logs as a commodity.
