By Patricia Perez Tue, Oct 05, 2010

SAO PAULO, Oct. 6, 2010 (RISI) -In a very positive scenario, boxboard demand in Latin America has been closely tracking the positive expectations for GDP growth in 2010. Year-to-date data has already being showing at least a 5% recovery in demand, after posting a 1.3% decline in demand in 2008 and a further 1% in 2009, falling to 2.3 million tonnes, as a result of the effects of the global financial crisis on local economies which led consumer product companies to work off high inventories.
