High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - June 23, 1974, High Point, North Carolina Plywood traded Nemo it cow Miti no it is new York the vast forests of Siberia have been swapped by the russians for american knowhow. Konstantin gala Shin. The minister for the russian paper Industry was bubbling with enthusiasm when he signed an outline Deal in new York this month under which the world s biggest paper company International a per agreed to sell its technology in return for a chess to a Reserve of Timber five times the site of anything in the United states and containing a third of the worlds pulpwood supplies. There is no shortage of Timber in the West yet. But America s remaining forests Are getting progressively less accessible and the environment lobby is staking its claim to More and More of the Trees in them. International paper Hopes that by being Friendly with the russians now it May be Able to buy their Timber when it needs it around 1990 it Hopes also to land the Job of Selling the russians own Timber in Europe which will need it Long before 1990. What the russians look for in return is a reduction in the time it takes to get their pulp and paper plants built. These now take twice As Long to come into production As plants in America. The russians annual investment program in pulp and paper exceeds $1 billion so they have an obvious interest in seeking outside help to Cut the time Down there Are.

Between March and May the americans ordered 1.2 million tons of new paper making and 1.1 million tons of new pulp making Plant the present capacities Are 66 million and 51 million tons respectively. None of this new Plant is for newsprint possibly because the newsprint makers who operate mainly in Canada have been alarmed by the worldwide fall in advertising. The volume of newsprint used in America was 9 per cent Down on the year before.
