Philippines: Big Boss Cement has reportedly stopped plans to build a new grinding plant at Bamban in Tarlac province following a series of protests by local residents. Local mayor Jose Feliciano said the cement producer had withdrawn its US$117m investment, according to the Philippine Daily Inquirer newspaper. The project was going to be built an agricultural land around 0.5km from a school with 4000 students. However, Feliciano noted that the loss of the factory would reduce local municipal funds.
