The private sector is and will always be a key player in deciding the future of forest-based landscapes. As such, leaders from small- to large-scale businesses — including timber, pulp and paper, palm oil and consumer goods more broadly — represented the private sector at the Summit. Discussion panels facilitated multi-stakeholder dialogue in which private sector views were heard alongside insights from scientists and government ministers. These discussions aimed to generate solutions to facilitating sustainable landscapes for green growth across Southeast Asia.
