KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The state-run National Development Company (NDC) on Sunday said the Ghori Cement Factory has been 95 percent reactivated and would soon meet 50 percent domestic need.

Jarullah Mansoori, head of NDC legal board and Riazuddin Sharifi, director of the company, talked about the development in the development sector during a press conference here.

Mansoori said they integrated capacity building of the development sector, acceleration of economic development and cohesion of state-run companies affairs for better coherence of national programs and facilitation of development in the country.

He said the Ghori Cement Factory encountered some problems in the contract implementation area when run by the private sector in 2017.

The factory contract was canceled with the private sector in August 2015 and its management was handed over to the Ministry of Mines and Petroleum.

However, the operation of the factory was later handed over to the National Development Department of the Presidential Palace which helped boost quality of the cement and increased the amount of cement production from 120 tons to 800 tons a day, Mansoori added.

Riazuddin Sharifi, head of Ghori Cement Factory, said that the factory had been 95 percent reactivated and would fully function in near future.

Mansoori, on the other hand, said that the factory was integrated into the NDC framework following a presidential order and Abdul Rahman Attash was appointed as executive director of the factory.

“NDC now has the plan to keep both production systems in the factory continually operative, increase the capacity of the factory to produce at least 50 percent needs of domestic market in the near future.”
He said a third production plant would be set up in the factory to meet 85 percent of domestic demand.

He said the NDC planned in long-term to upgrade all production technology in Ghori Cement Factory and turn the country from an importer to an exporter of cement in the next five years.
