CemWeek Magazine

CemWeek Issue 6

The December / January issue of the global, executive-oriented CemWeek Magazine takes a look back at 2011 to inform about the year ahead. Not only do we review some of the most important events permeating the global cement sector during 2011, but the editorial team shares its views on some of the most impactful leaders in the industry during the passed year in the "Person of the Year" feature.


The CW Group Research also shares its latest view on notable topics such as energy prices in the GCC-countries, Boral's expansion plans, South African anti-trust proceedings, and cement bulk shipping. The Magazine also takes a horizontal look at the leading CW Group cement sector surveys from the past year and talks to the MD at Italian lime manufacturing equipment manufacturer, Cimprogetti.
