Comments by Lim Seo-young, manager of Gunwoo Housing Land:
“Thank you for coming all the way to introduce yourself to Gunwoo Housing Land.
Thanks to the meeting organized by JC Lee BC Wood in Korea office, it was a good time to talk to someone in the Canadian Timber industry. It was a short time, but I think it was a time when I learned a lot about the lumber market in Canada and the United States as well as global demand.”
