The Association of Builders and Developers (ABAD) has issued a statement warning of the dangers of recent cement price rises. The Balochistan Times newspaper has reported that the association called the rises disproportionate given the local availability of raw materials. It said that the increase would be reflected in the prices of housing units under the Naya Pakistan Housing Programme.
Prime Minister Imran Khan launched the scheme, alongside a financial support package, to revitalise the construction industry in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.
