China: China Resources Cement (CRC) has reported lower net profits for the six months that ended on 30 June 2019, largely on falling sales of cement, clinker and concrete amid a slowing Chinese economy. Its net profit was US$481m, compared with US$510m in the first half of 2018. Revenue for the first half dropped by 6.0% year-on-year to US$2.22bn. The company said it will continue to seek partnerships with domestic and overseas companies as it noted that the Chinese economy is facing new downward pressure.
