Vietnam producers increase prices
Published: 24 September 2013


Vietnam producers have increased cement prices by VND100,000/t (US$4.71) to help mitigate higher input costs despite domestic demand remaining subdued.

The increase is due to the rising cost of inputs such as petroleum, coal and power. The average selling price is now VND1.28m. Prices in the north range between VND1.28m-1.66m/t while in the north they are VND1.36-1.74m/t. 

Producers have also reduced their discount to agencies by VND20,000/t, the price management department under Vietnam’s Finance Ministry said.
