RISI's NEW Asian Forest Business Summit will combine the well known Annual Asian Conference and China Paper Packaging Summit

BOSTON, Jan. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- RISI, the leading information provider for the global forest products industry, today announced that their new Asian Forest Business Summit will be held at the prestigious Four Seasons Hotel in the historic Puxi district, Shanghai from June 21-23. This event will be bigger and better, combining tracks from RISI's Asian Conference and RISI's China Paper Packaging Summit (CPPS) over three full days.

After close to two decades of producing conferences and events in the Chinese and Asian markets, it has become clear that an expanded event was needed. Due to popular demand, the three day event will allow more time to concentrate on the individual grades in greater depth. These will include: pulp, recovered paper, packaging and graphic papers. There will also be vital extra time to discuss important issues that are affecting the industry in Asia and throughout the world.  

This year the Asian Forest Business Summit will cover all important topics, including:

  • Capacity situation: What is the "new reality" of capacity in China and Asia across the grades and what are the market conditions that are affecting business?
  • Air pollution in China and the subsequent closing of capacity and how it will affect the markets.
  • The haze issue in South East Asia. What are the big paper companies there doing about it?
  • Deforestation: increased monitoring activity by the major brands – particularly for packaging - to make sure that there is no raw material in their supply chains that can be remotely linked to deforestation. What affect is this likely to have on production?
  • Forecasting and outlooks for the various grades in global and regional markets from RISI experts.
  • Regional CEO and senior management panel discussion covering market related issues
