Pakistan cement dispatches over the first seven months of the current fiscal increased by 6.18 per cent to 20.22Mt compared with 18.86Mt in the same period of the previous year, boosted by local sales.

"The most pleasant aspect of this growth is that it is led by domestic consumption which increased by 9.45 per cent during this period" a spokesperson for the All Pakistan Cement Manufacturers Association (APCMA) said.

Dispatches from the north rose by 10.63 per cent to 12.95Mt versus 11.70Mt in 7MFY13-14.
Growth in the south was a little more subdued at just 3.76 per cent to 2.54Mt (2.44Mt in 7MFY13-14).

Exports from the north, however declined by 11.49 per cent and were restricted to 2.782Mt. On the flip side, exports from the south increased by 12.18 per cent to 1.76Mt.
