It is reasonable to suppose that TNCs affiliates operating in the Brazilian pulp and paper sector search
for exploring the advantages of producing lower costs pulp to the domestic and international paper
markets, but it is also expected that they make innovation efforts to absorb and to extend the short-fiber
pulp technological knowledge based on eucalyptus. The participation of four important TNCs in two
