BEIJING, May 7, 2012 (RISI) -China's long-awaited, 12th Five-Year Plan for the pulp and paper industry was released on December, 30, 2011. The latest five-year development plan directing the pulp and paper industry through 2015 targets balanced growth of total paper and board consumption and production (at an annual growth rate of 4.6% for each of them). The final version of this plan is largely in line with market expectations, with a lower growth target and an emphasis on demand and supply rebalancing as well as industry optimization.
