Vietnam to become self-sufficient in cement by 2009
Published: 08 December 2006

Vietnam will produce enough cement to meet all domestic demands and even to export by 2009, as the progress of cement plant projects is being hastened, according to the Ministry of Construction.

The ministry expects that 11 cement plants will be put into operation earlier than scheduled, 21 other projects will be on schedule and 11 projects later than scheduled. Especially, there has so far been no investor interested in the Thanh My cement plant project. 

After one year implementing the development plan for the cement industry, the Prime Minister has agreed to add the construction of three more cement projects to the plan in order to increase the country’s production capacity.
