Director General (DG) of the Ivorian Centre for Investment Promotion in Côte d’Ivoire (CEPICI), Roger Banchi Monday received a delegation from the Moroccan group Addoha which says it is ready to invest  in the construction of a cement plant in Abidjan.


Accompanied by the Ambassador of Morocco in Ivory Coast, Faouzy Ahmed, the
Addoha group said the funding entirely, is available.


"We came inquiring of the investment climate and above all a search field, preferably in the port area, to start work immediately. We have already made the choice of equipment (...) and it only remains to order," said the CEO of Addoha.


The Moroccan group is seeking a plot of 10ha at least for the construction of the plant which will have a production capacity of 0.5Mta of cement, expandable to 1Mta. The group is given 18 months to build the plant, after the signing of the agreement to install with the Ivorian government.
