INC to raise production by over 20%, Paraguay

The president of the Industria Nacional del Cemento (INC), Optaciano Gómez, pledged on Thursday to increase the cement production over the previous year by more than 20%, which would reach about 16 million bags of cement.



The increase in production would occur through investments being made in the state cement company, which already allowed a record production of nearly 14 million bags in 2010, as noted its president.



Despite this level of production, cement demand exceeded the capacity of local supply due to the expansive growth of the construction sector by 14% over last year.
