Tanzania Portland Cement Company Limited (TPCC) recorded revenues of TZS 102bn in the first half of 2013. This is a decrease of 20% compared with the same period in 2012. The decrease in revenue is mainly due to decrease in sales volumes. These were largely impacted by the increased quantities of imported cement from Pakistan, allegedly caused by under-declaration of values and quantities leading to non-payment of statutory taxes and duties by the importers.
