Major conclusions

By 2003 timber industry has exhausted reserves of post-crisis growth, as well as entire Russia's industry. Output of timber and paper products grew 2.4% as compared to 2001, which is considerably lower than rate in the industry on the average/

General growth of timber industry in 2002 was achieved mostly due to stable work of pulp and paper industry. Logging industry remains the weakest component of Russia's timber industry, hindering its development. Abrupt slowing down in timber felling last year due to unfavorable weather conditions caused aggravation of raw material deficit at processing plants.

2002 saw decline of profit rate in timber and paper industry down to 4.3%, which was caused by rapid growth of material expenses and not followed by respective growth of product prices.

Against a background of poor production and finance the past year was marked by sharply growth of interest to the industry both on the part of governmental bodies and integrated business-groups. Alongside with this, the process of property redistribution has revived actively in the industry.

Growth rate of timber industry production in 2003 is estimated at 103.0 to 103.2% according to the stagnation variant, and at 104.6 to 104.8% according to the optimistic variant.
