The output of China's forestry sector rose to 6.4 trillion yuan, or about 930 billion U.S. dollars last year, up from 5.9 trillion yuan a year earlier.

China has become the world's biggest producer, trader and consumer of forest-related products.

Foreign trade in the forestry sector reached 136 billion U.S. dollars last year.

Output of the forestry sector grew from 409 billion yuan in 2001 to 6.4 trillion yuan last year.

That figure represents a more than 15-fold increase in 16 years.

Forest tourism has become a strong driver of the sector's growth.

Some 9-thousand forest-based destinations accommodated around 1.2 billion trips over the past year.

China's central government has also invested 335 million yuan in national forest parks and a total of 21 new national forest parks have opened in the past year.
