Published: 24 February 2011

A new wave of government housing projects in China this year will likely boost the demand for cement, helping to absorb the country’s additional capacities. 



Further, major upcoming construction projects in Sri Lanka, Russia and CIS may signal a return to growth for cement markets in these regions, a press release on 13th Asia Cementrade--scheduled on 31 March to 1 April 2011 in Shanghai--said.



The event is designed specifically to provide insights into how Asia’s cement sector is expected to unfold this year and the key markets influencing global trade movement, said a press release. 

The conference will also turn the spotlight on latest developments in China’s cement industry.
