Xinhua reports that International Paper is planning to spend US$4 billion on a pulp mill and 500,000 hectares of industrial tree plantations in Central Kalimantan and West Papua. The pulp mill would have a capacity of 1.5 million tons a year.

The article is based on an article in the Jakarta Post which quoted a senior official from the Forestry Ministry as saying that Central Kalimantan and West Papua had been chosen because there are currently no pulp operations there.

International Paper conducted a six-month feasibility survey looking at investing in a number of Asian countries, before deciding on Indonesia.
