CEMEX Philippines CEO and President Ignacio Mijares confirmed the company’s support for the economic growth of Cebu, Philippines, and the country’s infrastructure building programme, during a visit to Cebu provincial governor, Hilario Perez Davide III. CEMEX is one of the largest cement producers in the Philippines with a plant in Naga City, Cebu.

CEMEX is currently investing in its Filipino cement plants, including the Naga plant, as well as the Solid Cement plant in Antipolo City, Rizal. The investment comes amid an expected increase in cement demand due to the national government’s Build, Build, Build infrastructure programme.

“CEMEX also supports the government in achieving sustainable development,” the company said in a press release. “This is exercised through the implementation of numerous corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives to preserve a balanced ecology and uplift communities around the Philippines.”

Recent CSR initiatives in Cebu include the construction of a health centre, the conduct of skills and livelihood programmes, and the greening and mine rehabilitation efforts in various areas of the province. The company also provides housing for employees and other community members, as well as hosting periodic skills training workshops.
