Late last month, Reuters reported that the Myanmar government that would Myanmar bans commercial logging as declaredly a senior officer. However, it looks that the was rather a which than a real plan. The Myanmar Times reported that another senior official at the Ministry said logging had not been outlawed outright, and that additional restrictions were only an option at that point.



 “Firstly there is no logging ban,” said Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) Campaigner Faith Doherty to Mongabay. “It’s a statement made by an official but nothing has gone through the legislature or the Ministry.  The rumour is that the ban will be addressed for teak only – not other hardwoods.”
