Published: 10 March 2005

Cement Industries Malaysia Bhd (Cima), the country’s third biggest cement producer, plans to set up a M$50m (US$13.1m) grinding plant in Sudan to expand its export market, the New Straits Times reported. The newspaper quoted Cima’s managing director Rosli Shariff as saying that the company is talking to some potential partners from Saudi Arabia and Sudan about setting up the plant. He said the plant will cater for the Sudan market where there is a shortage of cement. Sudan imports about 2Mt of cement a year, he added.
