THE value of construction material imports increased a modest 3.14 percent in the first six months of the year, compared to 2009, according to figures released by the Ministry of Commerce yesterday.

According to a CamControl report, 254,839 tonnes of construction materials worth US$92.9 million entered the country in the first half, up from 233,586 tonnes worth US$90.1 million in the first half of 2009.

General Manager of Khmer Construction Building Materials, So Chandara, said yesterday that sales had improved, as some construction projects had restarted after a difficult year.

Lao Tip Seiha, director of construction department at the Ministry of Land Management, emphasised that smaller developments of less than 3,000 square metres were seeing growth.
