Published: 22 February 2010

The Ministry of Construction and the Vietnam Cement Association have announced that an additional of 13 cement production lines, with a designed capacity of 11.7Mt will be completed in 2010. 

When these production lines are put into operation, the cement industry will have a total capacity of nearly 70Mta.

However, the cement supply will be redundant in the following years as consumer demand is expected to increase by 10-15 per cent this year.
