China: Irish building materials group CRH has said at its annual meeting that it planned to increase its stake in the Yatai cement business in China to 49% from 26% as part of a wider push into emerging markets.

Chief Executive Myles Lee said CRH was preparing to exercise an option, opening in January 2013, to raise the stake. "We are setting the scene at the moment for that and we are keen to increase that stake. Obviously in everything valuation is key, so it has to be at a valuation that makes sense for our shareholders," Lee said.
