Forest Policy in Malaysia

by Forest L. Reinhardt

Abstract

The governments of Malaysia and the Malaysian State of Sarawak need to assess possible changes in forest policy. Environmentalist pressure threatens traditional market relationships and patterns of business-government interaction. Harvest regulations, subsidies, trade restrictions, environmental controls, and property rights structures are all called into question.
