Govt explores possibility of cement plant in Chin

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation (MNREC) is inviting expressions of interest (EOI) from foreign and local investors to conduct detailed feasibility studies and measurement of limestone deposits before considering the setting up of a cement plant in Chin State.

The proposed site for the project, covering some 4300 hectares, is located in Hakha Township, Chin State.

A ministry spokesperson said it is inviting the expressions of interest in order to study the feasibility of the project in Chin State.

“This project could have benefits both Chin State and the country. I believe this project will support the development of the state and its people,” Mang Hen Dal, the regional minister of agriculture, livestock and mines, said.

“Preliminary studies suggest that the area proposed for the project has sufficient limestone to support a cement plant capable of producing 5000 tonnes of cement a day, there is potential there,” he added.

There are currently no cement plant or mineral resource plants in Chin State and if the proposed project becomes a reality it will be first plant of its kind in the state.

According to MNREC, the expressions of interest from local or foreign investors are expected to be submitted towards the end of this month.

Myanmar currently has some 20 cement plants including three that are state-owned.
