As part of the follow up of the Global Compact Network Singapore (GCNS) Youth Forum, I was very excited to have the chance to visit APRIL’s site, to learn more about the paper production processes of one of the world's largest paper producer. Our trip was really a learning journey that exposed us to different parts of the whole paper production process, and also showed us how APRIL actually gives back to the Indonesian community in the rural areas and provide welfare for the community that lives with Pangkalan Kerinci.
