Tajik producers produced 4.2 million tons of cement in 2019, the Ministry of Industry and New Technologies of the republic said.
Note that a year earlier, 3.8 million tons of this building material was produced in the country.
Deliveries of this building material to neighboring countries were carried out in the amount of 1 million 546 thousand tons, which is 150 thousand tons more than in 2018. The Ministry of Industry notes that due to export of cement, the republic made $ 68.1 million last year.
Tajik cement was exported to Uzbekistan (890 thousand tons), Afghanistan (576 thousand tons) and Kyrgyzstan (80.6 thousand tons).
The main cement producers in Tajikistan are three Tajik-Chinese joint ventures – “Chungtsai Mohir cement”, “Huaksin Gayur cement”, “Huaksin Gayur Sughd cement”, which account for about 90% of the total.
In general, at present, more than 18 plants are engaged in cement production in Tajikistan. The number of such facilities in the coming years is planned to increase. In particular, Mohir Cement, with the help of Chinese investments, is building a cement plant with a capacity of 600 thousand tons in the south of the country.
