Dubai - Arabstoday

The UAE consumption of general commodity paper is 3.5 times that of newsprint. Asia Pulp & Paper (APP), one of the world’s leading pulp and paper companies and the largest vertically integrated pulp and paper producer in Asia, excluding Japan, has said that the consumption of both is high in the region due to the UAE’s position as the trade, media and financial hub in the Middle East. APP has announced its sponsorship of the 5th Paper Arabia Show 2012, the biggest paper industry show in the MENA region, to be held at the Dubai International Exhibition from 1-3 October 2012. Satish Khanna, General Manager, Al Fajer Information and Services, organizers of the show, said: “The expenditure on newsprint was high in recent years but with the evolution of the digital media the consumption has dwindled, while commodity paper consumption is getting higher with the economic rebound in the UAE and region.” He said Al Fajer was pleased to have a company of APP’s stature as a sponsor of Paper Arabia for the fifth consecutive year. He pointed out that Paper Arabia has become a must participate exhibition for companies working in the paper, packaging and tissues industries.

The total sales for 2011 by APP for Middle East region was USD 600 million. This shows our firm commitment to the UAE and the region.” He added: “APP is looking to expand its presence in Middle East and Africa. Hence, APP Dubai is currently focusing on Saudi Arabia which account for 30% for our sales and has potential to grow. The total UAE sales have also gone up by 9%. New offices have been opened in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Egypt, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa.” APP will unveil a range of new products at Paper Arabia 2012 including Foopak and Kokoru.
