According to local press reports, Tajikistan’s parliament has formed an agreement with Huaxin Cement Co. Ltd, China, for the construction of two new cement plants. This includes a 1 million tpy plant in the district of Bobojon Ghafurov and a cement plant with a production capacity of 1.2 million tpy in the Dangara Free Economic Zone.
Tajikistan will reportedly hold a 30% stake in the Bobojon Ghafurov plant and a 45% ownership share of the Dangara plant.
In January, Tajikistan’s Ministry of Industry and New Technologies said that six new cement plants would be established within the next two years. By increasing the production capacity of the country’s cement sector, which currently comprises ten plants, Tajikistan expects to become an exporter of cement.
