Published: 06 May 2005

Iran is likely to capture the market in Afghanistan in the next two years according to local press reports in Pakistan. Iran with one of the most economical rates of the commodity was the likely top exporter to the war-shattered country. Iran, it added, was planning to double its cement production apacity to 40Mt and the country is the cheapest cement producer across the globe.  This might hit Pakistan’s cement exports not only to Afghanistan, but also to all Middle Eastern countries that are undergoing massive changes, the report quoted analysts as saying.
