Letters to the Editor (December 06, 2013)

I am writing to you in response to the article regarding timber trade. (Rapid Plantation Expansion Fuels Deforestation in Ethnic Region, Nov. 29, 2013)
Since the inception of Max Myanmar Group back in 1993, we were never involved in any sorts of timber-related business. Our principle is to conserve our environment rather than exploiting or destroying it. The allegations made by the Forest Trends Group are unfounded and false. It should have made a thorough study of its report before publishing it. We are truly disturbed and saddened by the report’s claims about the company.
Thanking you for your kind consideration. I remain.
