Our thesis´ purpose is to examine the way of managing the political, commercial and currency risks, as well as its timing. It is limited to Swedish exporters of pulp and paper selling to China and Malaysia. 13 firms export to these countries and 12 have replied to our study. The models used are the BERA model for the assessment and management of the risks, and the PLC for the timing of the risk management. We have also studied the impact of the following four parameters:1) whether the importer is in China or Malaysia, 2) whether the importer is known or unknown, in other words if it´s a new customer or not, 3) whether the exporting firm is of large or small/medium size and 4) whether the impact of the Asian crisis of -97 has made a difference in the export.
