2. Suggest and support proposals for increasing the reliability and visibility of forest products statistics;
3. Advise on implementation of activities in work area 1 (data, monitoring and assessment) relating to forest products statistics
The first meeting of the Team was held on 16 June 2014 in Geneva.
