The divestiture came as International Paper Co. was increasingly seeking to serve the Chinese and Asian market more effectively, which the company is expected to do via its Ilim joint venture in Russia and with products exported from the United States and other key markets. Such M&A activities in the industry is expected to influence the global paper cups and plates market positively in the coming years.
