Ethiopian Cement Plants to Double Capacity Amid Construction-Industry Boom

Ethiopia will more than double its cement-output capacity after a new factory and two enlarged plants begin production later this year amid a building boom in the Horn of Africa country, a government official said.

The increase is expected to help end the need for imports by as early as next year, according to Shimeles Wolde, head of the Chemical and Allied Industries Directorate in the Industry Ministry. In recent years, Ethiopia imported about 1 million metric tons of cement annually to meet demand of about 8 million tons, Shimeles said in an interview.

“In 2012, there should not be that much need for importing cement,” Shimeles said today in Addis Ababa, the capital. “In 2012 or early 2013, supply and demand should be balanced.”

Addis zemen, that is a good saying. These diasporas they are not only wasting their time but they also want others to wast their time. But never for Tigreans. Tigreans never wast their time they are hard working people.

This is good news for a change. We will be better off doubling our cement production than mongering war and wasting money on war armaments.

One of the many good news out of Ethiopia that would churn the guts of Berhanu Nega, Alemayehu G/Mariam and the likes.

SAKBESAK, you shall be called LEQISOBELEQISO,
Who ever talks against the DAM is damend.
What do you mean Abay has been a source of misery and remains as that?
You must be an Egyptian agent, or maybe a shabian. No Ethiopian with a right mind trys to discourage or disparage our Abay Dam project.
Or you must be one of tamagn’s followers who were crying at the gets of Howard U, “ke ABAY befit dihenet yegedeb” LOL!!
ALQASHA!!

This is the usual Meles propaganda. I am sick and tired of their(EPRDF gangs) lie after lie. They make us believe the stones are really bread. All we have to do is chew on the rock and we are no more hungry!!
I wish I can write in Amharic but since I am at work no can do. But at home I diligently blog with my amharic Fidel and I am happy with that.

EPRDF ywdem!!!
