The Portland Cement Association (PCA) representing America’s cement manufacturers has supported President Trump’s call for a US$1.5 trillion investment to revitalise the nation’s infrastructure.

Cement is the core ingredient in concrete, which helps make American highways, bridges, runways, water systems and river networks safer, more durable, and longer lasting.
