Dear delegates,

We have been obliged to cancel Hawkins Wright Shanghai conference in 2020 due to the coronavirus.
We understand that CPICC hopes to postpone their event by 6-8 weeks, and will make a decision when the situation becomes clearer.
However, we believe it is unlikely that Hawkins Wright will be able to organise an event to the scale and standard that is expected, at such short notice.
We hope and expect that the Chinese authorities will bring the situation under control very soon, and we wish CPICC every success in their effort to host Shanghai Pulp Week at a later date.

Hawkins Wright - February 3, 2020

Hawkins Wright Shanghai Symposium

For more than fifteen years Hawkins Wright has been engaged in market research and consultancy services specifically focused on the fast developing but often opaque Chinese pulp and paper sector.
Through our unique approach combining primary fieldwork with detailed desk research, we have developed an original and industry recognised model for analysing and forecasting the Chinese market.
Throughout the course of this work we have developed an unparalleled network of clients and associates engaged in all activities relating to the sector, operating in China and overseas. Since 2005 we have worked with Chinese partners to provide a forum for Chinese and foreign companies to come together, present their views, and share ideas.

Charity fundraising

The PaperSeed Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening educational opportunities for children and young people in underserved and resource-lacking communities around the world. PaperSeed seeks to create lasting impact, well after the organization has ceased to be directly involved, by granting seed money to community-based organizations with leaders who have demonstrated an ability to run sustainable, long-lasting initiatives. We are grateful to CellMark, who underwrites all operating and administrative expenses for the foundation, thus allowing 100 percent of donations to directly benefit innovative leaders, entrepreneurs, and projects that strengthen and/or remove barriers to education.
