Abstract

Given the fact that timber is neither traded as commodity nor is any timber-focused exchange-traded fund (ETF) available in the SAARC countries, the objectives of this chapter are to examine the plausibility of making use of the wood resources of SAARC countries in the form of ETFs, e.g. timber-focused ETF, the nature of the legal and policy frames in these countries as implemented in timber business with reference to their suitability for opening ways to construction of timber-focused ETF and the theoretical plausibility of constructing a timber-focused ETF with reference to India. It is found that in comparison with other SAARC countries, India has developed timber-based industries whose stocks are traded in the bourses and amenable to analysis for ETF construction purposes. While Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Nepal have certain legal and institutional artifacts for preservation and maintenance of forests toward gradual but by-and-large unplanned industrialization of the timber industry, Maldives and Bhutan have hardly any.
