Angolan producer Secil Lobito recorded a 50 per cent increase in production, reaching 173,000t in 2006, against 115,000t in the previous year.

Victor Rodrigues, the company’s administrator, attributed the increase in production  to economic stability and construction of various infrastructure projects in the province

He also recognised that output does not fully satisfy domestic demand. To overcome this situation, he said the plant is importing quantities of cement from Portugal.
