HA NOI (VNS)— The Prime Minister accepted a proposal by the Ministry of Construction (MoC) to scrap nine low-capacity cement plant projects from the sector's master plan.
The Ha Tien – Kien Giang, Truong Son – Ro Li, Hop Son, Ngoc Ha, Vinafuji Lao Cai, Thanh Truong, Son Duong, Quang Minh and Cao Bang projects were supposed to produce less than 2,500 tonnes of cement per day.
The PM also agreed to extend the deadline for seven other cement projects to 2015.
Meanwhile, the Xuan Thanh 2 plant in northern Ha Nam Province joined the list of projects scheduled to be put into operation by 2015.
The PM asked MoC to co-ordinate with other parties to boost cement exports and minimise losses for domestic manufacturers resulting from inventory surpluses.-VNS
