The completion of a wood frame Administration Centre at the Sanlin Affordable Housing Project demonstrated the viability and benefits of wood construction to the Shanghai Housing Bureau, leading directly to the signing of an enhanced memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the housing bureau and the Province of British Columbia. The MOU was signed by Minister of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations Steve Thomson during a joint government-industry trade mission to China in October 2013. The MOU calls for greater cooperation in the areas of new wood frame technology applications and joint promotional efforts.
