China: According to Dow Jones, West China Cement expects to report a 'significant decrease' in net profit for the six months that ended on 30 June 2015, compared with the US$25.8m net profit for the six months that ended on 30 June 2014. West China Cement said that the anticipated decline is mainly tied to the low average selling price of cement in the past 12 months. It added that it was unable to maintain 'reasonable selling prices and healthy margins' in the southern part of Shaanxi.
