Peruvian domestic cement sales rose to 4.16Mt for the period from January to October 2006, up 16.2 per cent YoY, according to the Peruvian association of cement producers Asocem. 
 
The domestic cement sales were driven up by the higher number of public and private construction projects announced in the country, along with the state’s housing programmes Mivivienda and Techo Propio, and some road construction programmes. The sales are expected to maintain its upward trend by the end of the year and in the first months of 2007. 
 
Peruvian cement exports fell to 600,648t for the period from January to October 2006, down 1.93 per cent YoY.
