Gabon President, Ali Bongo Ondimba, formally inaugurated the new Cements de l’Afrique (CIMAF) cement plant in Owendo, Gabon, in the presence of the country’s Prime Minister and other dignitaries.

"This is another testimony of the achievements that we see accomplished in the industrial Gabon. And we are happy that the inauguration today be in the company of our Moroccan brothers who took it upon themselves to come and invest in our country,” said the president.

Built with an investment of EUR35m by the Moroccan cement producer CIMAF, the new cement plant has a capacity of 0.5Mta, which can be upgraded to 1Mta. Output of the works is expected to be destined for the domestic market.

"We are a developing country where construction takes an important part in both large industrial projects and infrastructure projects such as bridges, roads, dams and all that relates to the citizen and it is therefore the answer to all these needs,” concluded Mr Ondimba.
