The Dominican Association of Portland Cement Manufacturers (Adocem) swore in Carlos Gonzalez as its president for 2013-2014, succeeding Osvaldo Oller. Gonzalez, who is also president of Cemex in the country, joins Gabriel Ballestas of Cementos Argos (treasurer) and Jose Caceres of Cementos Cibao (secretary).

During his inaugural speech, Gonzalez, who heads Cemex infrastructure projects and housing for the South America and Caribbean region, said higher cement production could be achieved through a government working jointly with productive sectors “which such as ours has shown the ability to invest, create jobs, take risks and boost other sectors closely linked to our industry.”

He added that during his presidential term he’ll stress the promotion of new and more appropriate uses of cement in its various applications, and the encouragement of good practices, research and training.
