INTERCEM - Cairo, Egypt
The world’s leading independent cement industry conference will return to Cairo for a special meeting, INTERCEM: Cairo to Cape Town - the Challenge of Change. Looking at the cement sector across Egypt and Continental Africa, the conference will address the shared issues cement producers and traders are facing, particularly in relation to increased competition, and the rapid, widespread growth in domestic production
In the last year, the Egyptian industry has seen huge capacity expansions coming online, leading many local players to embark on an accelerated push toward a new export scenario. With a reduction in the value of the Egyptian pound by almost 50% against the dollar, and with the Egyptian government committing to assisting domestic companies to compete internationally, Egypt's re-emergence as a leading international exporter of cement and clinker is set to continue apace.
This meeting will bring attendees with the latest insight and analysis from across the Egyptian cement industry to assist producers, traders, and importers, as they consider the impact of the Egyptian export boom on their business and development plans. Leading experts will look in detail at some of the key markets across Africa that have become focal points for the international cement trade at the same time as many of them are witnessing a rapid growth in their own domestic capacity. Throughout the conference, delegates will assess what this means for the continued development of the sector across the continent. Also expect updates on some of the ground-breaking work that the Egyptian industry is undertaking to reduce fuel costs and cut carbon emissions across the country, as well as the role of the cement industry in Africa’s economic and social development and the financing of new cement projects across the continent.
We welcome you to the Siwertell booth nr 21, where you can learn more about clean and cost-efficient cement handling solutions.
