Local Bolivian cement producer Fancesa has increased production at its Sucre factory from 350tpd to 600tpd to meet growing demand.

However, according to company chiefs, this is still not enough to meet local requirements and have requested that other local producers do their part to further meet consumption.

Chairman of the plant’s board, Luis Alberto Iriarte said: "We are almost doubling the cement production of about 350t we produced, [and] we now produce about 600tpd, " he said.
