BIR Amsterdam 2023 is fast approaching! Paper Division announces programme: Be the first to hear the news… on Asian and global markets!

  • 03 May 2023

Paper Plenary Session :

Be the first to hear the news… on Asian and global markets!

Paper Division

Just ahead of the BIR Paper Division’s previous meeting in Dubai last October, there was an abrupt end to the sustained period of high prices paid for paper for recycling. This price shock has been followed by several months of greater stability as depressed collection volumes have been countered by lower demand from paper mills struggling with elevated operating costs, thinner order books and high stocks of both finished product and raw material. And while freight rates have become more supportive, international flows are facing threats from the revision of the EU Waste Shipment Regulation and India’s review of limits on non-paper materials in recovered paper imports.

The latest meeting of the BIR Paper Division will offer the perfect opportunity to take stock of latest market developments in the company of world experts and renowned guest speakers. So join us in Amsterdam on May 22 to ensure your business keeps its place at the front of the business information queue.
