Work has started on a new cement plant in Kyrgyzstan funded by US$70m Chinese investment.
The projected cement plant, believed to be largest in Kyrgyzstan on completion, is in Kemin, Chui province, about 13 kilometers east of the Kyrgyz capital, Bishkek.
Zhu Rongjun, general manager of Zeth-Cement, the Chinese investment subsidiary registered in
Kyrgyzstan and the investor of the new cement plant, said it would use advanced technology for production at the plant and that the plant’s construction process would also be pollution free.
Upbeat about high cement demand potential in Kyrgyzstan and even in kazakhstan, Zhu said the plant would start formal construction later this year and be completed and put into production in 15 months.
