City to relocate construction material factories

Ho Chi Minh City plans to relocate construction material factories and cement mixture plants from the city limits by 2020 to other localities or to industrial parks in the city.

Under the plan, the city will terminate operations of clay-fired tile factories by 2011 and construction material factories that have outdated production technology, that do not adhere to healthy environmental conditions or have low economic efficiency, by 2015.
The plan will only allow the city as a show window, display and exhibition center for construction materials.
