will do everything it can to support APP in its new commitments and encourage other leading companies to go down the same path.
Based on official figures of APKI, cultural paper had the largest production capacity in 2008.
A chairman of APKI said no pulp factory in the country had used illegal trees as tree basic material is easily available from legal suppliers with prices relatively cheap after the ban on log exports.
Based on official record of APKI, the country has around 80 pulp and paper companies consisting of 10 integrated pulp and paper factories, 67 paper factories and 3 pulp factories.
