“Congratulations to DG Khan Cement for making a breakthrough in winning orders for the export of cement to the Philippines. This follows on their success in China,” said Adviser to Prime Minister on Commerce, Abdul Razak Dawood, in a tweet on Wednesday.

“Once the market reach extends, then the market share will increase. Increasing geographical diversification is a vital part of our strategic trade policy,” Dawood stated.

DGKCC is amongst the largest cement manufacturers of Pakistan, with a production capacity of 22,400 tonnes per day (6.72 million tons/annum). The company has four cement plants, two plants located at Dera Ghazi Khan, one at Khairpur District (Chakwal, Punjab), and one at Hub Lasbela District (Balochistan). All the plants operate on the latest Dry Process Technology.

The latest export orders will be a boon for Pakistan exports, which has declined by 6.8 percent during 2019-20, due to the economic slowdown which has been brought in by the coronavirus pandemic. The country’s exports at the end of the fiscal year ending on June the 30th, 2020, stood at $21.387 billion against a target of $24 billion. In 2018-19, Pakistan exported goods and services worth $22.958 billion.
