Attock Cement Pakistan Limited (ACPL), which makes the Falcon brand of cements, has announced that trial production has started at its newly-built plant in Iraq.

The Express Tribune quotes analyst Syeda Humaira Akhtar as saying:

“The demand scenario in Iraq is very strong and it is going to be stronger with expected political and economic stability … Iraq has allowed the import of clinker without any duty, but the country has imposed 100% duty on cement import.”
