The World Cement Association has announced that it is welcoming the Cement Producers Association of Iraq (CPAI) as an Affiliate Member.
CPAI counts among its members 12 of Iraq’s leading cement producers, which together represent around 25 million t/a of production capacity.
Since it was founded in 2013, CPAI has held an annual conference to explore the current state and future outlook for Iraq’s cement market. These events have a particular focus on developing the cement sector generally, overcoming specific production challenges and constraints, and creating opportunities for technical cooperation between members.
CPAI also works closely with the Iraqi government on regulation and new legislation affecting domestic markets, as well as with peers in the Arab Union for Cement and Building Materials, of which it is a member.
With its quarterly magazine for cement manufacturers, and a busy calendar of workshops and seminars, CPAI keeps its members up to date on the latest industry and technical developments around the world.
