COVERAGE NOTE: Changes to Fastmarkets RISI Japan price coverage

As part of an ongoing effort to better serve the markets we cover, from September 2019 Fastmarkets RISI Japan price assessments will follow the same methodology as other Asian prices.

Previously Fastmarkets RISI used Nikkei as the source of all Japan pulp and paper assessments. Going forward, these assessments will be compiled by our own reporters.
