Jinyuan Cement Co Ltd, a subsidiary of Hong Kong Jinyuan International Development Ltd, is proposing a new cement plant in Chhattisgarh, India.

“The company inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the state government in Shenzhen (China) and announced to invest US$1bn to set up a cement plant in Chhattisgarh,” Subodh Kumar Singh, secretary commerce and industries, said.

According to officials, the Chinese firm’s officials would visit the country to complete the remaining formalities that include the project report and location.
