Côte d’Ivoire will import 90,000t of cement as the country tackles its cement shortage, according to the country’s government. The shipment is the first of a total import operation that will see 300,000t enter the west African nation.

The increase in real estate construction projects has led to a surge in cement demand, putting upward pressure on prices.
