Congo Rep to produce 3.3Mta of cement in 2016
20 January 2016


The Republic of Congo expected to produce 3.3Mt of cement annually in 2016, a considerable increase when compared with the present 0.7Mt. The rise will enable the country, which is currently a net importer, to export cement to other central African countries. Three new cement factories are scheduled to come online this year in Kouilou, Bouenza and Pool.

The Congolese authorities intend to make the Congo an emerging country by 2025. At industrial level, they plan to provide the country with several cement plants required to produce the cement needed for the construction of large national infrastructure projects.
