Ukrtsement Association forecasts a fall in cement output by 25.78% or 2.431Mt to 7Mt in 2010 compared with 2009, the Association announced.

Taking into account the January-February slump in production, cement plants will be able to reach 7Mt by the end of the current year, the statement said.

Ukraine produced 347,500t of cement in January-February, or half as much versus last year’s figures.
