The state government of Nagaland, India, plans to establish a cement factory to meet local requirements and export to Southeast Asian markets.

Chairman of the Nagaland State Mineral Development Corporation (NSMDC) Thomas Lotha said the proposed plant had been initiated in view of the huge economic potential of the state’s mineral deposits, according to reports by United News of India.

Plans to export quantities are in line with the central government’s ‘Look East policy’ to enhance economic and strategic relations with Southeast Asian countries.

Nagaland is situated in the far north-eastern part of India. It borders the Indian state of Assam to the west, Arunachal Pradesh and part of Assam to the north, Myanmar to the east and Manipur to the south.
