DR Congo: Matadi cement price falls
20 October 2016

For the first time in a month, the price of a 50kg bag of cement has fallen in Matadi from CDF12,500 (US$12.16) to CDF8500, according to domestic news reports.

The drop in price comes as a result of increased supply of cement imported from Angola.

However, sales remain subdued and the Association of Independent Cement Consumers of Kongo-Central has recommended that the government removes the import tax charged at the border post of Lufu.
