The trade plays a pivotal part in the entire paper industry operation. The responsibility of maintaining and enhancing that role lies with all of us.
For doing so, just as we need to actively counter the present attempt at condemning paper as an environmentally unfriendly product, all of us have to jointly and actively promote and help enhance the usage of paper in our daily life.
In addition, the trade needs to play greater role in helping both the producer and the user in adding greater value to their own efforts, which will in turn help the trade to remain relevant and also add to the margins.
Like in all other spheres of human activities, the technology for paper making, printing and packaging are rapidly changing. The trade will need to constantly keep itself abreast of these changes on continuous basis, so it can efficiently perform its role on value addition.
Since younger generation is more adapt at imbibing these technological innovations, I would like to invite them to join the paper trade in larger numbers, so both will stand to gain,in the days to come.
I wish a great future for the entire paper trading community.

Paper – It is Bio Degradable,Recyclable and Sustainable
It is hard to imagine what life would be like without paper. All of us use it, in one of its many forms, each and every day. Just take a look around you and see how many different types of paper and board you can see.
Paper is a versatile material – it can decompose in water, yet maps can withstand the weather. Even boat hulls have been made from it.
Paper may be used as a fuel, or be made fire-resistant. It may be a carrier or a barrier or a filter. It may be made tough enough to withstand acid, or soft enough for a baby’s skin. It can be read and it can be worn as a garment. The list is endless.
It can be re-used and recycled and it is made from a renewable source.
