The microproblems in the forest sector deal with problems at the corporate and mill levels, however they can not be studied separately from the macroproblems, i.e., trends and problems at regional, national or global levels, because these macrosystems form that economic, political and sociological environment and climate where the individual companies and mills must be operated. The macrolevel problems can be most suitably studied nationally and/or internationally in suitable organizations or institutes and the results of these analyses must then be projected by the company's own staff to the company and mill levels. The microproblems discussed here can be roughly divided into the following groups: resource management; raw material procurement; technology; strategic planning; operational efficiency; marketing; policies.

This report is based on the presentation given at the Nordic Workshop, on Forest Sector Modeling, at Hemavan, 14-18 April, 1980.
