Angola: cement import to respect law
Published: 07 March 2011

Importing cement to Angola, in the coming days, will be subject to limits enshrined in the law, on Friday said the Secretary of State for Industry, Kiala Gabriel, the Angolan press agency ANGOP learnt.

Speaking to the press at the end of a visit to Nova Cimangola cement factory, he said the government has created a cement commission that has been drafting a diploma that will regulate importing quotas.

Kiala Gabriel visited the factory in the company of the Secretary of State for Geology and Mining, Makenda Amrboise, at the invitation of the Nova Cimangola board of directors.

He said that there has been competition in the cement market, something that is unfavourable to the domestic production. Nova Cimangola produces about 1.2Mta of cement.
