Ghislain Libart is a lumberman from the Ardennes who became world player in international wood trading. He has transformed his little company into a multinational enterprise. Libart exports European spruce trees to China, saws down French oak in Egypt and turns expensive wenge trees from the Congo and Sierra Leone into timber. Trees have become big business, and Libart does not need to be told twice. Major enterprises all over the globe cannot function without timber and that is where he comes in. The industry may be booming, but the wood sector has received its fair share of economic blows due to the global crisis. We look into the globalization of our economy, as seen through the eyes of a local lumberman.
