Outlook 2017
“This year will require a great effort from the companies in the planted tree industry to recover the drop in export prices and ensure an actual growth in revenue. The Brazilian Central Bank has been working to keep inflation within the middle of the target, and it is also essential that the Government concludes other reforms so that we can see a sustainable recovery of the Brazilian economy still this year,” said Elizabeth de Carvalhaes, Ibá’s executive president.
“Under these circumstances, the forestry industry can clearly stand out, since there are expectations of Brazil jumping from 4th to 2nd largest pulp producer in the world already during the first months of 2017, surpassing Canada and China. This accomplishment will increase even more the visibility of the Brazilian industry in the global market, adding value and reputation, in addition to boosting trade and investments,” de Carvalhaes said.
