Over the first 10 months of this year Tajikistan produced more than 1Mt of cement, an increase of 776,000t compared to the same period of last year, according to the Ministry of Industry and New Technologies (MoINT).

The increase in output has been possible due to the “operation of two large cement plants – the Yovon cement plant [Huaxin Gayur Cement Co] and OJSC Tojikcement [Dushanbe cement plant],” an official source at the MoINT told Asia-Plus in an interview.

According to the source, Huaxin Gayur Cement produced 760,000t of cement and Tojikcement produced 178,200t of cement over the review period.
