Export of timber and pulp and paper products to the far abroad countries declined by 27.4% in 2009 due to decreased volume and prices on unprocessed timber and pulp. Decreased average contract prices led to decline in export of newspaper, glued plywood and processed timber despite growth of volume. 

Export to the CIS countries decreased by 25.6% due to decreased delivery volume and prices on basic products.
