Dangote sets sights beyond Africa
Dangote Cement is expanding out of Africa. While its chairman Aliko Dangote remains firmly committed to the continent and its 40Mta production capacity owned by the company, he has set his sights beyond its borders – starting with Iraq and Myanmar, where plant construction could start as early as next year. When asked why he is investing specifically in those locations, he gives the example of Myanmar. As the country opens up, the opportunity is currently there to invest but may disappear at some stage later.
