China: Asia Cement China’s revenue dropped by 29% year-on-year to US$620m in the first half of 2020 from US$868m in the same period in 2019. Its cement and clinker sales volumes fell by 24.4% to 11.1Mt from 14.74Mt. Its profit for the period declined by 41% to US$131m from US$223m. The group said that in the central and downstream region of the Yangtze River the market peaked in May 2020 following coronavirus-related disruption. However, flooding then reduced demand. In Sichuan, coronavirus and foreign imports reduced the price of cement in the first quarter of 2020.
