PACKAGING PAPER

Packaging paper production is the most stable sector in the paper industry. Production in 2013 rose 10.25% year-on-year.

TISSUE PAPER

Tissue paper production in 2013 increased nearly 40% year-on-year as new PMs were erected and came online. Therefore, tissue paper export in 2013 also increased 72% year-on-year. Tissue paper consumption also increased nearly 30% though people saved on consumption. This might be the result of high urbanization growth rate and the convenience of tissue paper in daily life.

JOSS PAPER PRODUCTION
