Siam Cement Group (SCG) of Thailand plans to boost exports of its Elephant brand cement to Myanmar and expand its distribution network in the Southeast Asian country, according to an official of the company’s local subsidiary.

Speaking to the Myanmar Times, Soontornpol Veerapravati, managing director of SCG Trading, which is SCG’s subsidiary in Myanmar, said the company would export 2Mt there in 2013. However, this is just a one per cent increase over the 1.9Mt likely to be exported this year, he said.

Mr Veerapravati said the company, which has been active in Myanmar for almost 20 years, also plans to expand its distribution networks to include more of Myanmar’s towns and cities.
