Vietnam is estimated to have produced 8.2Mt of cement in the first two months of this year, up 16 per cent from a year earlier, according to the government’s General Statistics Office (GSO) said.

In February, the country’s cement output is likely to have fallen by 23.91 per cent from January and nine per cent from the same month of last year to 3.5Mt, the GSO said in a monthly report released late Tuesday.

The office revised the country’s cement output in January to 4.6Mt from the earlier estimate of 5.1Mt.

Vietnam’s cement sales are predicted to rise by 5-8 per cent YoY to 48-49Mt in 2013, on a par with 2011 sales.
