World Cement,

According to Argentina’s Association of Portland Cement Producers (AFCP), dispatches totalled 897 299 t in February 2015, including exports. Although this is 5% lower than the previous month of January, it is 11.8% higher than the volumes recorded in February 2014.

AFCP’s associate members dispatched 885 296 t of cement on the country’s domestic market, including imports. This represents a decline of 4.6% m/m. However, when compared with the corresponding month in 2014, domestic consumption improved by 12.9% y/y. Argentine President Christina Fernandez de Kirchner took to Twitter to celebrate the increase, which is a new record for the month of February.
