The 5th Hawkins Wright & Brian McClay market pulp Shanghai Symposium was held on 16th March, 2017. Around 380 delegates congregated in the Shanghai City Centre hotel for a day of high level presentations relating to the Chinese pulp and paper industry. These presentations are now available to download, along with the final delegate list. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for the login details. The Symposium capped a busy week of meetings and receptions for buyers and sellers, and the mood was generally very positive.
We are extremely grateful to our sponsors, whose support ensures that the Symposium grows each year. We welcome suggestions from sponsors and delegates in order to help us improve future events. The 2018 event will be held on Thursday, 15th March.
Finally, we were once again very pleased to be able to support the Paperseed Foundation for the 4th consecutive year (see below). Thanks to all individual delegates who took the time to make their own personal donations to this important charity.
The PaperSeed Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening educational opportunities for children and young people in underserved and resource-lacking communities around the world. PaperSeed seeks to create lasting impact, well after the organization has ceased to be directly involved, by granting seed money to community-based organizations with leaders who have demonstrated an ability to run sustainable, long-lasting initiatives. We are grateful to CellMark, who underwrites all operating and administrative expenses for the foundation, thus allowing 100 percent of donations to directly benefit innovative leaders, entrepreneurs, and projects that strengthen and/or remove barriers to education.
