Qatar, cement supplies improved
Published: 26 June 2006

Cement supplies in Qatar have stabilised recently but demand is still outstripping supply, reported The Peninsula. Construction industry sources have said that the huge projects underway in the country have massive requirements which local producers cannot get close to meeting, even at full capacity. Qatar’s current cement requirement is around 700,000t per month but local suppliers can generate only a third of this.
