Puerto Rico's economic activity index dropped 0.5% year-on-year in November, caused in part by a 2.5% fall in cement sales.
The index is closely correlated with overall economic performance measured as gross national product, and has four main indicators: cement sales, gas consumption, non-farm payroll and electric power generation.
In comparison to cement, on-farm payroll employment increased 0.5% year-on-year in November, while electric power generation dipped by 0.5%.
Over the coming weeks, World Cement will be hosting a series of technical webinar presentations from KHD! Each presentation will be led by industry experts and provide a detailed discussion of KHD’s product offerings to the cement industry.
