China-based Anhui Conch Cement said it plans to begin construction of a new cement plant in South Kalimantan, Indonesia, later this year.

Following a meeting with a delegation from China's Anhui province, Indonesia’s Industry Minister MS Hidayat told the Jakarta Post: "The planned plant in South Kalimantan will be able to produce 2.5Mta of cement.”

Conch is currently awaiting the completion of its land acquisition process and a license to be issued by the South Kalimantan administration so that the plant can be built in Tanjung, Tabalong, according to Hidayat.
