Media exposure such as this provides us with a great opportunity to raise awareness of modern wood designs in an effort to position wood as a legitimate alternative to concrete and steel. 

In March, 2017 “Multinationals in China” magazine featured an article titled Developing Timber Architecture and Fulfilling Sustainable Development; the article was based on an interview with Managing Director of Canada Wood China Eric Wong, General Manager of FII China Lisa Dou, and Canada Wood China’s Director of Communications Lance Tao.

Since prefabrication is a government priority, government backed state-owned media are key to delivering our message to key government decision makers.
