Powerpoint slide: A Region in economic transition.
      Contrary to popular mythology, paper manufacturing remains strong – the large traditional manufacturers are making key capital investments to stay competitive on a worldwide stage. However, they remain strong because they must relentlessly substitute capital and brain-power driven innovation for labor. The major action is also now found in “high-tech paper” – paper converting, paper-based advanced consumer products, and non-wovens.

UWGB is, already, a key player in these initiatives.

Other changes include a growing health care industry, rapidly expanding services sector, growing impact of minority-owned businesses, and, less positively, loss of local ownership of national and international corporations.
