Cement production rose by 5.6% year-on-year to 1.8Mt in the first quarter of 2018 from 1.7Mt in the same period in 2017. The production rise has been driven by an increase in local sales, according to the African Press Agency. Local sales of cement grew by 50.6% to 1.28Mt from 0.85Mt. However, exports have fallen by 37% to 0.56Mt from 0.90Mt.
