What’s next? The industry needs:

  • Stimulus measures: Government action to boost demand and revive the construction sector.
  • Policy clarity: Transparent, pro-business policies to attract investment.
  • Infrastructure focus: Increased spending on infrastructure projects to create demand for cement. ️
