Cuba will reduce this year the importation of ground gypsum used in the production of cement while.
Buying this product abroad makes it twice as expensive for us and that is why the island is investing in the Carlos Diaz Ramos mine in the province of Matanzas, which specialists believe to have very large reserves.

According to Granma news daily, the country consumed in 2007 more than 103,000 tons of ground gypsum in the cement industry and almost 16,000 of them were imported at a cost that surpassed 500,000 dollars.

The process of investment also includes a mine in central Ciego de Avila province, which distributes gypsum to cement plants in the eastern region of the island.
