Vietnamese cement producers are seeking new markets to export products, since the domestic supply has far exceeded the demand. Commitments made by the three foreign invested cement factories when receiving the investment licenses was that they will export their products instead of selling domestically. By the end of 2010, Vietnam had exported nearly 1 million tons of cement and clinker. However, the export was not made by the three foreign invested enterprises, but by the Vietnam Cement Corporation (Vicem) and Vissai Ninh Binh. In the first eight months of the year, Vietnam exported 2.8 million tons of cement and clinker, the highest ever level in the history. Vissai Ninh Binh and Vicem remain the two biggest exporters.
