To meet the local demand for cement production this year, the country must import 4.5Mt of clinker, said the construction ministry. More than half of these imports will be needed in the first six months of 2004, with Viet Nam aiming to produce 26Mt of cement, 10 per cent more than last year. In 2003, the country imported 3.5Mt of clinker.
