Eurocement Group Ukraine, a subsidiary of Eurocement Group (Moscow) has plans to develop the markets of Mid East. Hennadii Donets, the director of the Eurocement Group Ukraine, said to Ukrainian News.

"We are working on the program on providing the countries of Middle East with cement. It is worth mentioning that the focus is to be made on Syria, Pakistan, Iraq, and Turkey," he said. He said the company had been working for three months on a program of cement transportation by sea.

The Baltsem plant has commissioned a facility that is capable of loading 25,000t vessels for transportation by sea, Donets said. The company was already exporting cement to Belarus, Moldova, Azerbaijan, Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Romania. In 2005, the company claimed to have exported 753,480t of cement, which is 55.18 per cent of total sales.
