China has decided to promote timber as a viable alternative to conventional steel and concrete construction of high-rise buildings, with the aim of having a positive impact on the environment.

A Chinese delegation made up of representatives from the Ministry of Housing and Urban – Rural Development (MOHURD), as well as scientists and other  experts, has been visiting Europe in order to learn from European modern timber construction experts.
