Indonesia cement sales grow 9.5 pct y/y in June

JAKARTA, July 16 (Reuters) - Indonesia's domestic cement
sales grew 9.5 percent in June on an annual basis, slowing from
a month earlier, data from the country's biggest cement firm PT
Semen Gresik Tbk showed on Monday.
    The country used 4.5 million tonnes of cement in June,
making for a total of 25.9 million tonnes cement used in the
first half of the year. Main island Java and Sumatra led the
sales, the data said.
    Bank Indonesia on Thursday kept its benchmark policy rate at
a low record of 5.75 percent and forecast full year economic
growth at 6.1-6.5 percent. The bank said it remains vigilant
about global growth.
