Teak prices for December 2008 were generally stable except for some of the higher grades, with MTE selling about 800 tons in the tender. This limited quantity helped tender average prices stay at previous levels. Buying and selling were slow, given the current low level of demand in the market. With poor economic outlook in developed countries, Myanmar producers did not expect a dramatic turnaround in the trade situation in the near future. Some exporters were also reported to be planning for higher sales to the domestic market.
