Labuan’s cement shortage to be addressed, Malaysia
Published: 08 September 2008

The Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry has given its assurance that the shortage of cement here will be resolved soon.

Its deputy director, Aslani Dabi, said on Saturday contractors should not be unduly worried about the shortage as the ministry had been getting additional supply of cement from Cement Manufacturer of Sarawak over the last few weeks.

He also said the Cement Industries Sabah (CIS), the main supplier for Sabah and Labuan, had been asked to look into the matter.

Labuan needs at least 4600t of cement per month but had been getting only 3200t from CIS every month.
