Tajikistan's Ministry of Industry and New Technologies plans to open six new cement plants in the next two years. Currently the country has 10 cement plants. The additional capacity will reportedly turn Tajikistan from a cement importer to an exporter.

Construction began on a 1.2Mt/yr capacity Tajikistan-China joint venture cement plant, Tajchina, which is expected to start production in 2015. Additionally, plans have been made for other cement plants in the Dangara, Bobokon, Gafurov and Isfara Districts and in Istiklol City. The country's largest cement plant at present is Huaxin Gayur Cement Co, a joint venture between a subsidiary of Huaxin Cement Co and Gaur Limited Liability Company.
