Semen Indonesia to continue Rembang construction
Published: 12 October 2016


Despite the decision of Indonesia’s Supreme Court to cancel an environmental permit for Semen Indonesia's Rembang plant, the cement producer will continue the construction of the works.

Semen Indonesia's Corporate Secretary, Agung Wiharto, said: "As a publicly-listed state owned company, the management will comply with the legally-binding court decision ...(but,) until we receive the official copy of the ruling, we'll continue construction.”

The project represents an investment of IDR4.9trn and is 95 per cent complete, according to Mr Wiharto. The plant was scheduled for completion by the end of this year.
