Adi said, the success of achieving export sales from January to August 2018 above proved that the quality of the products produced by the cement company was internationally recognized and highly competitive.

The company's cement and clinker export destinations are Sri Lanka, Tahiti, East Timor, Tonga, United Arab Emirates, Yemen, the Philippines, China. In addition, the company also exports to Australia, Austria, Maldives, India and Bangladesh.
