Rattan is one of the important minor forest products in South China, especially in Hainan, Yunnan, Guangdong and Guangxi provinces, China has a substantial rattan based cottage and furniture making industry which employs 70,000 people, mostly in the south of the country. Nearly two thirds of the requirement of cane is imported from other cane producing countries, This dependency is expected to increase in the future as the demand for raw cane grows and local supplies diminish, The popular local cane, Culumus hainensis, is on the verge of extinction and urgent steps are required to conserve and promote rattan resources of China.
