The country's production of paper is predicted to rise 5% to 7.8 million tons this year from 7.4 million ions in 2004, the association of paper producers (APKI) said. APKI chairman M. Mansyur said 35% of the production will be exported. Mansyur said the production could still be increased as the country has an installed capacity of 10 million tons a year. He said domestic consumption of paper is expected to rise to 5.6 million tons this year from 5.4 million tons. The country still has to rely oil import for waste paper pulp especially long fiber pulp, which is not yet produced domestically.
