President Petro Poroshenko stressed the importance of strategic vision on the management of forestry and hunting. “At the legislative level, it is necessary to resolve the issues of stimulating the development of domestic woodworking with the production of goods with high added value,” the President noted. At the same time, he stressed that the pace of development of the industry did not meet the requirements of time.

"Forestry should create high added value," the President said in Ivano-Frankivsk during the meeting on forestry reform and improvement of state environmental policy.

The President emphasized the great tourist potential of the Carpathians and emphasized the importance of preserving the forest areas of the region: "Who will go to the Carpathians, if there is no forest in the Carpathians? If there is illegal logging, if there is drought and illness, and we lose our fantastic natural potential - our national wealth". He also noted that the Carpathian forests are interesting not only to Ukrainians but also to the whole world and are protected by UNESCO.

“You cannot invite tourists to a bald mountain,” Petro Poroshenko said and stressed the need for a careful attitude to the environment and cessation of illegal deforestation.
