Pakistan: The All Pakistan Cement Manufacturers Association (APCMA) has expressed its concern over a ‘sharp’ rise in coal and fuel prices have increased the production cost of cement. Sources quoted by the association have blamed the implementation of supply side measures in China to limit its coal mining capacity, according to the Nation newspaper. A recent surge in coal prices has also followed stricter local rules on coal transportation. The association has called on the government to avoid ‘disruptive policies’ that impact construction growth.
