Tehran plans to invest US$500m in the construction of a cement factory in Tajikistan, a source at Iran’s embassy in Dushanbe announced on Wednesday, reports the Fars News Agency.

"A seven-member delegation of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s economic experts, including legal experts, investors and technical experts of Lian Kavan Kania company, are in the Republic of Tajikistan to find out Tajikistan’s cement production potentials and capacities," Abbas Bayani, an economic expert at Iran’s embassy in Dushanbe, told FNA today. 



He also reiterated that the cement factory would have a capacity of nearly 2Mta. 

The negotiations between the Iranian and Tajik officials on building the factory started two years ago and the final agreements will be made in the near future, Bayani added.
