Tajikistan, Iran finalize deal for $ 500 mm Tajik cement plant

Feb 09, 2011 12:00 AM

Iran will build a $500 mm cement factory with an output exceeding 1 mm tn per year in the republic’s most populated Khatlon province, the Iranian ambassador to Tajikistan announced recently. Iranian firm Lian Kavan Kaniha will take one and a half years to construct the plant in the Nosir Khusrav district, the AsiaPlus news agency reported. Speaking to journalists in the Tajik capital Dushanbe, Iranian Ambassador to Tajikistan Ali Asghar Sherdoust said the relevant agreements were signed in late January 2011.

The Tajik Ministry of Energy and Industries would also like the Iranian company to construct a mini cement plant in another district within the Khatlon province before beginning on the agreed plant, the diplomat revealed at the press conference.
"Negotiations on this subject are under way," the Dushanbe-based news agency cited Sherdoust as noting.
The developments come in the wake of the visit by an Iranian delegation of construction experts, legal advisers and investors to the Central Asian republic in early January to assess its cement production capacity and potential. Talks on construction of the cement factory in Nosir Khusrav began as early as 2008.
Tajikistan is unable to produce enough cement to meet its needs and has been importing the binder mainly from Pakistan and Iran, as well as from Russia and Kyrgyzstan.
