Ghana: Dangote Cement has appealed to the Ghanaian government to ban imports of cement from China. Dangote officials made the comments on a press tour of its own cement import terminal at Tema, according to Kaspa local radio. Chinese cement importers were accused of not paying correct tariffs and not holding adequate certification.
Dangote, a cement producer based in Nigeria, faced investigations by the Ghanaian Ministry of Trade and Industry in February 2016 due to allegations of predatory pricing reported by local media. As well as operating a 1Mt/yr cement import terminal the company is building a 1.5Mt/yr clinker grinding plant in Takoradi.
