May 29, 2011 (ERITREA) – The Minister of Public Works, Mr. Abraha Asfaha, disclosed a number of major construction projects will be implemented in 2011.

Going into detail, Mr Asfaha stated Eritrea will construct four new large stadiums, in addition to the two already being renovated in Asmara. He further highlighted residential and apartment complexes will be given a top priority, as well as modernizing Massawa and Assab ports. Moreover, the minster noted various airports will be constructed throughout Eritrea and no less than 56 new schools will be constructed.

The Ghedem Construction Company recently disclosed it will establish a new foam factory in the Gash Barka region; which in addition to the one in Massawa, will help in accelerating construction projects throughout Eritrea. The head of Ghedem Construction Company, mr. Mebrahtu Mael, also noted large apartment complexes are currently being constructed in the town of Gahtelay, using the foam-core panels.

Virtually every large building seen in the photo below of Massawa's mainland has been constructed between 1995 to 2011. Massawa undoubtedly has seen some of the most development, in comparison to its size, than any city within Eritrea.

Costing 15 million Nakfa to build (1 Million USD),  president Isaias Afwerki recently inaugurated the new Saint George Church in Adi Keih. It is to be noted, the previous church had been completely destroyed on April 15, 1999 by invading Ethiopian aerial bombardment.

Eritrea's Gedem Cement Factory will commence operation within a few weeks. When fully operational, this multi-million dollar factory that's estimated to cost between 60 to 80 million USD, will produce over a thousand tons of cement daily, and will play a noticeable role in bringing the overall cost of construction down throughout the country.

  1. Forgive me for doubting this report, but I have been hearing on the cement factory for the last four years and every time I heard the news it said, "factory concluded over 90%," or "just about to begin, providing services," then "it began a pilot project production," and the last report I read said, "just about to begin full production," and this report says, "production to begin with in few weeks." You can correct me if you disagree with what I stated above.

    When is this factory going to present its first product? I do not want few weeks or couple of weeks, I just was a date, just like June 15, 2011 or June 30, 2011. A private business has a clear date and makes that date no matter what, give and take a week. Either do not tell us, or tell us the truth. I just want to be told the fact, the exact point.

  2. It's already producing portland grade cement as we speak. The article speaks of being fully operational, which will mean the cement factory producing one ton of cement daily. One ton of cement is more than enough to meet Eritrea's domestic needs. Again, the factory is already in service, just not at full capacity! It will start full capacity within a few weeks! This is a very expensive project, and will play a critical role in development.

  3. The cement factory is producing one thousand tons a day not one ton

  4. Adam, the question that comes next is, how come the Eritreans that paid their hard earned money for a home have not been given their homes? When are the Eritreans, already paid for their homes going to get it? As you can see I do not like the kind of vague answer every report comes up with. My petpeeves of words are in a "couple of..." or "Soon..." these words do not have time limit, what's soon to you is not the same to me, what's "couple of..." may not be the same couple of ... I understand.

    So, tell me when are the people going to get their homes? Some have already spent their money after waiting for many years.

  5. Mr anonymous of May 29,

    I wonder where you are writing from. If you are writing from Europe or North America, you are unfairly measuring performance by the standards of the countries there. Other wise, if you have been following reports on this project and other development activities in Eritrea, then you have also heard of the challenges the country has been facing. Given all the challenges and obstacles thrown on the people and government of Eritrea, the country should be applauded for even trying to build one. Not knowing the exact date of production is the least of your worries as long as it is going to soon enough!

  6. Anonymous of June 1, 1:31 PM, you sound like an agame (Ethiopian) pretending to be Eritrean. You first tried to undermine the Cement factory, then when people told you that this nearly 80 million dollar factory is already in service but not at full capacity, you started switching your attack at another avenue. Face it, you are Agame, your first swipe failed, and now you've changed your attack towards another "compliant" - basically, the more people correct you on your lies, the more you change your position, which is a trademark of Agames. Suddenly, you don't have housing issues, but "Eritreans" do. Instead of saying I, I, I, you are saying, we, we, we - which is your attempt of trying to make your lies seem big. You are not Eritrean, but a typical Agame. A person with housing issues does not go commenting about it, but goes directly to websites that deal with this matter.
