The secretary of the Syndicate of Paper and Cardboard Manufacturers announced the final price of packaging paper would be determined by the end of week.
In an interview with the Tasnim News Agency Cultural Correspondent, referring to the efforts of the Syndicate to reduce the packaging paper price on the market, Mahshid Pourdad, the secretary of the Syndicate of Paper and Cardboard Manufacturers, said, "We have reduced price of packaging paper three times since the previous weeks, but the final price will be applied by the end of the week."
He continued, "We are trying to boost the domestic sales by announcing the final price and also by controlling the price of domestic raw materials (waste paper)."
Responding to the question of 'whether the price of domestic printing and writing paper will be reduced or not.', Pourdad responded, "In the current situation, the price of writing and printing paper is under the control of importers, and the reduction of the price of the domestic production is not economical with respect to the price of raw materials."
Finally, Pourdad noted, "The decision will be made for five types of packaging paper by the end of this week."
