“One of WCA’s key ambitions is to more effectively engage emerging-market players in the global cement ecosystem,” explained Ian Riley, CEO at WCA. “We are therefore particularly pleased to welcome Semen Indonesia to our global community and look forward to the valuable contribution they will be able to make to our efforts, to share and improve best practice among members.”
