According to the Ecuadorian Institute of Cement and Concrete, around 524 900 t of cement was sold in April of this year. This compares to 545 440 t in April 2013. However, it does represent a month-on-month increase as just 497 600 t of cement was sold in March 2014.
Venzuela’s Cemento Andino dispatched more than 1.138 million bags of cement in the states of Trujillo, Portuguesa, Barinas, Mérida, Lara and South Zulia in April. The number of bags equates to some 48 379 t of cement.
