Indonesia will build a number of new cement plants soon to meet rising demand for the commodity in 2009/2010, an executive said. Demand for cement would be on the increase in line with the government`s plan to construct 1000km long toll road connecting Jakarta and Surabaya, chairman of the Indonesian Cement Producers Association Urip Timuryono said after meeting Vice President Jusuf Kalla here on Thursday. Urip said the project would need 500,000t to 1Mt of cement.
