Each fortnight we will bring you up-to date content, specifically tailored for your sector.

We will also bring you regular analysis from industry figures, writing exclusive content for TimberTrader.

Our first column will be from the Housing Industry Association’s Chief Economist Harley Dale.

Some of you may remember Harley as a speaker at the recent Frame & Truss Manufacturers Association of Australia (FTMA Australia) 2015 conference.

Harley has spent over 20 years in the economics field covering a wide range of roles in New Zealand, Australia, Hong Kong, and the United Kingdom.

He began his career as an international economist specialising in East Asia and since then has been focussed on the Australian domestic economy, particularly in relation to the construction industry.

This fortnight Harley discuses the residential construction boom in New South Wales and the handy tool for the timber industry that tracks the progress of Australia’s non-residential construction sector.

We hope you enjoy, and please forward this e-newsletter to colleagues and friends who may be interested – it’s free to sign up.

Thank you,

Megan Macdonald, Associate Editor
