SURVEY:

Pulp and paper innovates to Survive

Pulp and paper companies in the Southern Hemisphere have reacted to the Asian economic crisis with an increasing focus on new products and markets.

This has seen the development of a distinctive Southern Hemisphere pulp and paper industry during 1997/98, with moves to develop Australasian, Southern Cone Latin American and Southern African linkages.

Wood pulp production in the main Southern Hemisphere countries rose by 13 per cent to 18.6 million cubic metres in 1997 over 1996. Paper production has also expanded during the decade, and rose a further 8 per cent in 1997 over the previous year.

The survey covers the main pulp and paper producing companies of Chile, Argentina, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa, and takes account of production in the southern region of Brazil where plantation pine and eucalypt resources are utilised.
