The EU FLEGT Facility works in several Asian countries. Some are in the process of negotiating a Voluntary Partnership Agreement on Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) with the European Union (EU). Others are implementing such an Agreement. One of these implementing countries, Indonesia, has started issuing FLEGT licences to verified legal products it exports to the EU.
The EU and China work together to combat illegal logging and associated trade globally through the Bilateral Coordination Mechanism (BCM) on Forest Law Enforcement and Governance.
Myanmar is in dialogue with the EU on FLEGT.
