SCG is continuing to strengthen its presence in the ASEAN region through a series of investments and capacity expansions. Among these projects are a 1.8 million tpa plant in Indonesia that is expected to start-up in mid-2015, increasing its cement production capacity in Cambodia by 900 000 tpa, and a 1.8 million tpa plant in Laos that is due to begin operating in 2Q17.
