Drop in production due to pest control measures
Nankang District in Ganzhou City, Jiangxi Province is the
largest solid wooden furniture production and
manufacturing base in the country with more than 6,000
furniture enterprises with an annual output value of
RMB200 billion. Around 3 million cubic metres of pine
panels are imported annually. The enterprises support over
100,000 jobs.

After the implementation of pinewood nemetodes control
measures a ban on pine panel processing was introduced
which meant furniture enterprises were unable to export
products. This resulted in a drastic reduction in production
and sales, the suspension of business and unemployment.
In response the Nankang District approved the import of
pine panels to help industry recover.

Statistics on industrial enterprises from January to April
2021 profits of enterprises with annual revenue of RMB20
million reached RMB2.59 trillion, up 1.06 times over the

manufacturing enterprises was RMB228.42 billion, up
35% year on year and the total profit by furniture
manufacturing enterprises was RMB9.77 billion, up 51%

cane, palm and grass product industries reached
RMB282.19 billion, up 29% year on year. The profit of
this group of industries was RMB9.27 billion, up 15%
