Agenda:         Is India the Next China in the Paper Industry?

Within the next ten years India is forecasted to surpass China in population and surpass the U.S. as the second largest economy. Will India be the next China for paper production?

There are significant differences between India and China however, which will be outlined in the presentation. Although this presentation focuses on the Paper Industry, there are insights that could relate to other industries.
