Opening of the wood and furniture testing center in Ghana

A video was produced to highlight the wood and furniture testing center opened in Ghana in February 2018. Commissioned by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) with support from the Government of Switzerland through the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), the center is located at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) - Forestry Research Institute of Ghana (FORIG), in Fumesua in the Ashanti Region.

The Wood and Furniture Testing Centre (WFTC) is the first of its kind in the West African sub-region and the third in Africa, following Egypt and South Africa, allowing Ghanaian and imported wood and furniture products to be tested to ensure they meet the required trade standards for consumer use and protection.
