PPI Latin America is used by professionals in the pulp and paper industry to stay on top of market news; track prices currently being paid for key grades of wood pulp, recovered paper, packaging paper and board, newsprint, and printing and writing papers; and better understand issues that are impacting regional and global markets.

"Brazil is the center of the pulp and paper industry in Latin America, and our customers here have come to rely on PPI Latin America to help them do their jobs better," noted Renata Mercante, editor. "Though a large percentage of businesspeople in Brazil speak English, we are pleased to offer this critical intelligence to all market participants in Brazil."

Mike Coffey, RISI CEO, commented, "With the opening of our São Paulo office in 2006 RISI made a strong commitment to serving customers in the Latin American pulp and paper industry. Since then we have launched PPI Latin America in English, held annual Latin American Outlook Conferences and more than doubled our Sao Paulo staff. This Portuguese version of PPI Latin America is one more example of our continued interest in this region."

Latin America has become a key exporter of pulp used for the production of paper and packaging in Europe and Asia, and is expected to exhibit faster growth in market pulp capacity over the next 10 years than any other region in the world.

PPI Latin America in Portuguese is available for the list price of 1,297 BRL (approx 715 USD) for a one-year subscription of 48 issues, delivered online.  A 30-day free trial is available. Customers can learn more and order at www.risiinfo.com.br/newsletter.html
