Xiaoqiong Liang completed her six-month Fellowship in October, 2013. As a research assistant for the Chinese Academy of Forestry in Beijing, Xiaoqiong worked on policy development of the new forest certification scheme being implemented in China, the CFCC, or Chinese Forest Certification. With CFCC applying for endorsement by the larger certification body PEFC, Xiaoqong came to WFI to study how the implementation of CFCC would affect US trade of forest products with China. Specifically, she looked at FSC-certified companies in the US and how much they export to China and assessed their level of knowledge regarding China’s new forest certifcation and what it might mean for them and their business.
