Although the development of corrugated paperboard packaging in China began relatively late, the industry today has great vitality and its current production value is already about 85% of the national packaging industry total.

Liu Shousheng, Secretary General of the China Packaging Federation Paper Products Committee, recently expressed his optimism to the China Press and Publishing Journal, saying that the rapid development in West and Central China had created great prospects for the industry.

Mr. Liu also highlighted problems such as out-dated practices and overdependence on manual labor. He suggested that manufacturers at all levels innovate together to explore different developmental routes.
