BUSINESS - India cements ties with Burma

A lull in domestic demand has led several Indian cement producers to ramp up exports to Burma, industry news site Cementworld reported Tuesday. Tamil Nadu-based Dalmia Bharat Cement Ltd has began shipping approximately 10-12,000 tons to Burma in January 2014, while Ramco Cements Ltd, also based in Tamil Nadu, has shipped about 40,000 tons of cement to Burma to date. Several other companies including India Cements Ltd and Chettinad Cement Corporation Ltd are also “testing the market” in Burma, said the report.
