B.C.'s pulp and paper sector in need of renewal - Study

A new report released today by the B.C. Pulp and Paper Task Force warns that B.C.'s pulp and paper industry is falling behind its competitors in other regions and requires strategic reinvestments and sound public policy if it is to be renewed.

The task force, which includes representatives from all 20 pulp and paper mills in B.C., commissioned Poyry Forest Industry Consulting to conduct an assessment of the industry's competitive position and its future economic prospects.
