The 1Mta factory will be constructed in Nosir Khusrav district in Tajikistan’s Khatlon province, the Iranian envoy told reporters on Tuesday.

 

“The agreement on building this plant was signed in late January 2011” after two years of negotiations, he further explained. A seven-member Iranian delegation, comprising legal experts, investors and experts from the Lian Kavan Kaniha Company visited Tajikistan in early January to find out the country’s cement production potential.
