Indonesia's domestic cement sales rose to 14.43Mt in 1Q16, up five per cent from the same period last year of 13.84Mt.

The rise appears to be driven partly by the development of government infrastructure projects, power plants and smelter projects.

The Head of Indonesia Cement Association (ASI), Widodo Santoso, was quoted by Investor Daily as saying that the rise of cement sales was as expected by ASI. “We hope the sales will increase in the coming months.”
