Intresset för svenskt trä växer i Indien

Written by Tony Harkén on torsdag, 21 mars 2019. Posted in Main 1, Indien, Artiklar om Indien, Main 2

Intresset för trä växer i Indien varpå branschorganisationen Svenskt Trä nu växlar upp närvaron i landet med att delta i den 6:e upplagan av träbearbetningsindustrins evenemang DelhiWood 2019 som hölls 13 – 16 mars.

Svenskt Träs monter speglade en resa från skogen till den designade furumöbeln för att visa på Sveriges hållbara skogsbruk och furuns formbarhet.

- Vi ville visa att svenska sågverk erbjuder svenskt trä från ett sedan länge etablerat och hållbart skogsbruk. Därför valde vi att presentera både den hållbara skogen och den bearbetade furuns kvaliteter i vår monter. En resa från planta till planka till konstruktion och design, sa Björn Nordin, chef för interiör och design på Svenskt Trä.

Svenskt Träs mässmonter speglade en vandring från skog till färdig produkt. Besökaren kunde börja med att sitta i och höra skogen för att sedan kunna se och ta på slutprodukter av det förädlade träet. Svenskt Trä hade inför mässan låtit den svenska designern Marcel Max, tillsammans med möbelproducenter i Bangalore, skapa möbler i furu för att visa på den svenska furuns potential som ett naturligt, hållbart och formbart material.

- Den svenska exporten av sågade trävaror till Indien är än så länge blygsam, men den ökar. Den svenska sågverksbranschen ser Indien som en marknad för framtiden och exporten till Indien från Sverige förväntas fortsätta att öka, sa Kenneth Wallin, vd på Martinsons.

Svenskt Träs medlemmar ser stor potential i Indien varpå man växlat upp närvaron i landet. Svenskt Trä deltar i år i både under DelhiWood 2019 och under det svenska lifestyle-eventet Swedish Style Mumbai i juni 2019 initierat av utrikesdepartementet.

Under mässan DelhiWood 2019 hölls ett arrangemang med kunskapsutbyte under samlingsnamnet Timber Forum. Här deltog experter inom möbler och inredning, möbelproduktion och detaljhandel, träkonstruktion och handel i diskussioner med fokus på möjligheter och utmaningar inom träbearbetning. Svenskt Trä höll en presentation om svenskt trä och den trend som syns i Europa kring möbler och interiörer i trä.

Pakistan-India showdown: What you’re not being told

Written by Tony Harkén on onsdag, 27 februari 2019. Posted in Indien, Artiklar om Indien, Left 2 - 3st, Main 5

A recent terrorist attack in Kashmir could set the stage for a major conflict between India and Pakistan as India begins bombing Pakistani territory. As always, the root causes of these are being ignored by the media.

On February 14, India was rocked by a suicide-bombing which took place inside Jammu and Kashmir. The attack targeted a convoy of security personnel vehicles, killing at least 42 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) officers (as well as the bomber himself).

Responsibility for the attack was claimed by a Pakistan-based Islamist group called Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM). JeM’s main goal is to steal Kashmir away from India and unite it with Pakistan, to ensure that Pakistan is ruled by Sharia law, and to drive Western forces out of Afghanistan. Its other eventual priority is to drive all Hindus and non-Muslims from the Indian subcontinent.

‘US law doesn’t apply here’

India’s defense chief resists pressure over S-400 deal with Russia.

American laws are their own matter locally and have nothing to do with India, the country’s defense chief said, refusing to bow to a US sanctions threat over its planned purchase of Russian S-400 air-defense systems.

New Delhi has relayed to Washington that the threat of unilateral US sanctions will not have an impact on its decision on the possible purchase of S-400 Triumf air defense missile systems from Russia.

“We have told the US Congress delegation that this is US law and not a UN law,” India's defense minister Nirmala Sitharaman noted, apparently referring to a US federal bill that was implemented in 2017.
