The American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) announced some items that top its 2019 advocacy priority list. This year, the association plans to promote a more resilient paper recycling system, transportation infrastructure, international trade, tax policy and regulatory reforms and process improvements.  “Clear public policies that advance our industry’s ability to apply sustainable manufacturing practices to innovate, invest, compete and plan for the future top our 2019 advocacy priorities list,” says AF&PA President and CEO Donna Harman. “A market-based paper recycling system, improved transportation infrastructure, free and fair trade, a competitive tax system, and regulatory reforms and process improvements will go a long way toward helping our companies make the products that improve peoples’ everyday lives.” According to an AF&PA news release, the association plans to pursue these priorities as it supports the pulp, paper, packaging, tissue and wood products industry’s ability to grow and create manufacturing jobs.
