Dubai: Russia is aiming to boost its exports of timber, with many Russian companies participating at the Dubai WoodShow 2018, a wood and furniture components exhibition being held from March 12-14.

Dubai WoodShow, taking place at the Dubai World Trade Centre, is expected to see 300 exhibitors from over 55 countries this year, with over 10,000 visitors set to attend.
