Cement production in Mexico rose 4.16 percent in the first 10 months of the year on strong demand from a buoyant housing sector and expanding public works amid an economic expansion. According to figures released on Monday by the National Cement Chamber, output in the January-October period grew to 27.7Mt up from 26.6Mt in the same period a year earlier. In the third quarter, Mexico’s economy grew 4.4 percent, its fastest year-on-year pace in almost four years.
