New cement factory in Los Andes proposed
Published: 28 September 2010

A proposal for a new cement plant in the town of Cumana, Los Andes Province in Bolivia has been tabled in the Bolivian parliament. The initiative came after local visits that confirmed the presence of large deposits of limestone.

"The project suggests that this region has its own cement factory and seize the material benefit of the development of the region and its inhabitants," said parliament member Samuel Pamuri (MAS). The project aims to benefit a population of over 10,000 inhabitants as well as help to address the country’s cement shortage.
