Operators in the pulp, paper products, printing and publishing industry have raised concerns about poor investment in the sector’s value chain owing to government policies and regulation.

According to them, the amount spent on importation remains a source of concern to the industry, as 410 billion naira was spent on importation of paper making material, paperboard articles in the third quarter of 2021.

The operators, however, are suggesting new species of trees to increase access to raw materials.

The Federal Government, through the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment, had earlier announced plans to revive the nation’s poor paper industry by setting up an inter-agency committee to investigate the remote and immediate causes of the collapse of the privatized paper mills in the country.
