Cimpor is analysing a possible investment in a new cement plant in Jordan but no decision has been taken yet, the company said confirming press reports.  
 
In a statement, Cimpor said it is still analysing the quantity and quality of available raw materials and the perspectives for growth of the cement market in the Middle East.  
 
Press reports earlier this week said that Cimpor was in talks to build a cement factory in Jordan in a joint venture with a local partner. The reports said the local constructor already has the go ahead from the local authorities for work on the plant to begin.
