According to reports, Tajikistan’s Ministry of Industry and New Technologies has announced that six new cement plants will enter operation in the next two years. This will add to the existing ten cement plants in the country; the additional capacity will turn Tajikistan from a cement importer to an exporter of cement. Cement production from January – November 2014 was 1.1 million t. Imports from January – October 2014 reached 487 000 t, almost half of the quantity imported in 2013.
Construction has already begun on Tajikistan-China joint venture, Tajchina, which is expected to start up this year with a capacity of 1.2 million t. The other cement plants are planned for Dangara, Bobokon, Gafurov and Isfara districts, and Istiklol city. Currently, the country’s largest cement plant is Huaxin Gayur Cement Co., a joint venture between a subsidiary of Huaxin Cement Co. and Gaur Limited Liability Company.
