Stora Enso strengthens research co-operation in China

Stora Enso, Helsinki, Finland, has signed a comprehensive framework agreement for co-operation in research and development with the Chinese Academy of Forestry in Beijing. The agreement, signed on November 27, 2002, establishes the basis for a wide range of studies in the field of reforestation and use of plantation wood for papermaking, including the use of native poplar trees.

This agreement enhances the ongoing joint research work on developing fast-growing southern, mainly eucalyptus, species for efficient use in pulp and paper manufacture.
