ENVIRONMENTAL groups will travel to Japan alongside Premier Lara Giddings and timber businesses following the peace deal's affirmation in Parliament this week.
The move holds up the environmentalists' end of the bargain to grow access to markets - including those of Ta Ann, part of the trade mission.
Environment Tasmania director Phill Pullinger, who will travel alongside The Wilderness Society's Lyndon Schneiders, said it was part of what they signed up for.
"We've been regularly meeting with customers, both domestic and international, to provide updates," Dr Pullinger said.
"Markets have changed over recent years and are increasingly concerned about the environment.
"This has taken many people outside of their comfort zones ... and we're doing this in good faith."
Forest Industries Association of Tasmania chief executive Terry Edwards said the move was a timely boost after Parliament's vote of confidence on Thursday.
"Industry confidence is enhanced further by the environment groups going to Japan ... and will help ultimately to gain FSC certification as it demonstrates satisfaction with the agreement," Mr Edwards said.
Three hundred and ninety- two thousand hectares of new reserves have been created by the vote, including in the Styx, Weld, Upper Florentine and Butler Gorge forests, although the majority is contingent on winning Forest Stewardship Council certification and unlikely to happen before late 2014.
Ms Giddings said she was very pleased with the Legislative Council's increased majority vote in favour of the reserves, and with the trade mission, saying it was a scenario "that would not have been dreamed of before the Tasmanian Forests Agreement".
More than 80 Japanese pulp, paper and forestry customers have registered to attend a TFA information seminar in Tokyo on September 13.
While Ms Giddings was enthusiastic about their support, Greens leader Nick McKim was less effusive, saying he had no problems with the groups joining the mission.
"People are entitled to go to Asia and make their views known to whoever," Mr McKim said.
The state Liberals are likely to claim a mandate to overturn the peace deal from next Saturday's federal poll, with leader Will Hodgman saying Tasmanians would have their say on the "disastrous deal on September 7".
