Introduction

Behind hundreds of commonly used paper products like board boxes, paper bags, envelopes, notebooks, roll of toilet papers, diapers, newspapers, magazines or books, there are a whole chain of companies generating employment and wealth and contributing to natural revenue. Behind paper products there are thousands of workers, billions of Nairas in terms of salaries wages, taxes and contributions to the Nation’s coffer. The activities integrated in the value chain of paper and pulp are very varied and heterogeneous. They include everything from wood plantations for paper, ( Forestry ) to pulp and paper manufacturing and the different types of industry and sector services ( processing, advertising and direct marketing, printers, publishers ), women hygiene products , medical supplies , baby diapers, without forgetting delivery logistics (postal and shipping services), ending the cycle with the recycling of paper and cardboard and its return to paper mills Contribution of Pulp and Papermills to Energy needs ( electricity ) is also growing and local production can contribute to the electricity needs of the Nation.

Nigeria imports an estimated 3.0 million metric tonnes of paper and pulp for its consumption. This is costing the nation over 3 billion dollars in value.
Can Nigeria save this fund or a percentage of it.?

Through the value of the production/services generated along the paper and pulp value chain and with the purchases and investments made in the development of its activities by stakeholders/players along the value chain, this can be galvanized to give a powerful boost to the Nigerian economy in terms of wealth and job creation as well as foreign income generation for the country.
