"It is necessary that we do not cover the sun with a sieve and speak openly about the situation. Cimpor or any other supplier needs to be called to account for these serious failures in distribution. We must seek more solutions for the market, allowing us to have more local distributors. Exclusivity and monopoly only serve to harm growth and development, causing harmful impacts directly on consumers", declared the deputy.

Varela highlighted that so far the situation has not been properly taken to Cimpor or regulatory oversight, which has generated widespread frustration. "As long as we continue to just preach to the wind and nothing changes, we will all be dissatisfied. It is imperative that concrete measures are taken to resolve this crisis that is harming not only civil construction, but several sectors of the local economy", emphasized the deputy.

The scarcity of cement has caused delays in public and private works, in addition to increasing costs for end consumers. Contractors, builders and even small traders have felt the negative impacts of this situation, which seems to be dragging on with no prospect of a solution.

Faced with the worrying scenario, Varela called on everyone to join forces to pressure the competent authorities to act urgently. "We cannot allow the island to suffer the harmful effects of this crisis any longer. The time has come to act with determination and seek solutions that guarantee an adequate supply of cement for all our citizens", concluded deputy Samuel Varela.
