Senior Management Symposium
Tissue Market Dynamics With Focus On The MENA Region Incl. Turkey

The global tissue consumption is doing well with steady growth rates and recording new peaks year after year, but investors have noticed the good prospects, resulting in a major issue called overcapacity. The trade of tissue is growing in importance and Turkey has become a major exporting country. Single countries in the region are facing a sharp increase in energy costs while others are impacted by economic and political instabilities – partly causing a focus change and project delays.

Updates and Interpretations will be highlighted on new projects and recent trade developments.
