Intercem Dhaka 2019
WORLD’S LEADING CEMENT CONFERENCE RETURNS TO BANGLADESH. 300 DELEGATES FROM 30 COUNTRIES IN ATTENDANCE
For the first time in 7 years, INTERCEM, the world’s leading cement industry event is held in Bangladesh. 300+ delegates have attended INTERCEM DHAKA which will held from 4th-6th Nov 2019 at Le Meridien Dhaka. The chief guest for the event is Honorable Minister Saifuzzaman Chowdhury, Minister of Land, People’s Republic of Bangladesh.
Taking place in association with the Bangladesh Cement Manufacturers Association (BCMA) and attended and supported by all the major domestic cement producers, INTERCEM DHAKA will provide a forum for cement industry executives from across the region and further afield to meet, network and access market-leading presentations and forecasts on developments in Bangladesh and across Asia.
Bangladesh is the world’s biggest clinker import market, importing almost 19 million tons of clinker in 2018 from all across Asia and the Indian Ocean, from Saudi Arabia in the West to Japan in the East. It is difficult to overstate the importance of Bangladesh to the international cement market; as this rapidly growing economy invests in new housing and infrastructure projects, the country’s lack of limestone reserves mean that Bangladesh has provided a ready export market for clinker from across South East Asia, the Indian subcontinent and the Gulf. Demand for cement in the country has grown 9 – 10% every year for almost a decade but is still at a relatively low 166kg per capita – suggesting that increasing demand, and by extension imports, could continue well into the 2020s.
Shun Shing Group, Hong Kong, the owner of Country’s top brand SEVEN RINGS CEMENT is the NATIONAL SPONSOR of the event.
