China Softwood Lumber Import Statistics Correction

(The following is a correction to the China Import Statistics, for two separate issues: First Quarter January-March statistics, published in the June 9, 2010 issue; and Second Quarter January-June statistics, published in the August 18, 2010 issue.)

In the China Softwood Lumber Imports table on page 6 that appeared in both the August 18, 2010 and June 9, 2010 issues of International, the ?2009? and ?% Chg? columns were incorrect. For both issues, data listed in the previous year ?2009? column was actually for 2008. Because the comparison was made to the wrong year, the ?% Chg? column is also incorrect.

Data in the 2010 column, and the China Softwood Lumber Exports table, have been correct.

A revised page 6 with the correct China Softwood Lumber Imports data for August 18, 2010 and June 9, 2010, in pdf format, are available to view or download on this page:
