How is the construction industry responding to the global surge in wood prices?

The extended delivery times for wood and fiberboard, as well as the global price increase of the raw material, are causing many headaches for certain businesses and consumers. In this context, our deputy André Bauler asked the Minister of the Economy how the construction industry is dealing with the current situation.

„D‘Präisser fir verschidden Zorte vun Holz sinn zënter enger gewëssener Zäit staark am gaangen ze klammen. Zu Lëtzebuerg ginn et eng sëllege Firmen, déi mat där Matière Première schaffen an vun de globale Präishaussen staark betraff sinn.

Virun deem Hannergrond wollt ech dem Här Wirtschaftsminister folgend Froe stellen:

  • Kann den Här Wirtschaftsminister de Wuesstem vun den Holzpräisser tëscht 2018 an haut retracéieren, andeems tëscht deene verschiddene Etappen an der Wäertschöpfungsketten ënnerscheet gëtt (Präisser, déi Bëschbesëtzer, Seeëreien, Schräinereien a Charpentieren, Holzhändler, etc., bezuelt kréien)? Wat wiere méiglech Ursaache fir dës Entwécklung?
  • Kann den Här Minister aschätzen, wéi sech dës Hausse op d’Präisser an eiser Baubranche auswierkt oder schonn ausgewierkt huet?
  • Ass den Här Minister a Kontakt mam Secteur? Wat ass de Feedback, deen den Här Minister vun de betraffene Betriber zur aktueller Situatioun kritt?“
