Bolivia: Weimar Pereira, vice-minister for Medium and Large Scale Industrial Production, says that the government is close to signing new rules for cement industries that will prioritise domestic products over imported asphalt on roads and for public works. He made the statement in talks with local producers Fábrica Nacional de Cemento (FANCESA) and Cooperativa Boliviana de Cemento, Industrias y Servicios (COBOCE) as well as union representatives, according to the Correo del Sur newspaper. The new rules are expected to be implemented by August 2019.
