Argentina: The Asociación de Fabricantes de Cemento Portland (AFCP) has reported a 10% year-on-year increase in cement shipments to 1.04Mt in September 2020 from 948,000t in September 2019. Clarín News has reported that this corresponds to month-on-month growth of 13% from 924,000t in August 2020, signalling the start of a recovery from the economic effects of the coronavirus lockdown.

Chamber of Construction president Iván Szczech said, “There are beginning to be positive indices, such as these cement sales. The sector has been working with the government in different lines to encourage both public and private works while waiting for all projects to be completed.” Szczech attributed the longer-term increase in sales to streamlined business models.
