China remains the main market for Brazilian pulp (a 40% share) generating earnings of some US$2 billion followed by European countries (a 31% share) at a little over US$1.6 billion.
Latin American countries were the main markets for the paper and woodbased panel segments in the first ten months of the year with export revenues above US$1.0 billion and US$126 million (+16.7%), respectively.
