The strategy aims to develop the building material industry towards advance and modern standards; churn out high-quality products which meet international standards; ensure energy saving; meet domestic demands; abolish outdated and environmentally polluted technologies. 

In addition, the strategy looks to export products with high added values and competitiveness and minimize overseas shipment of non-renewable materials. 

The strategy set a goal that by 2025, cement factories with designed capacity of up to 2,500 tons of clinker per day, consuming intensive materials and energy must renovate technologies in order to raise productivity; product quality; energy saving, and environmental protection. 

Regarding construction glass, glass products will be made with high economic values including energy-saving glasses, super white glasses, ultra-thin glasses, glasses for the energy battery, and fireproof glass. 

To fulfill the aforesaid goals, the strategy figures out seven solutions including:

- (i) Perfecting mechanisms and policies;
- (ii) Exploiting mineral resources in an effective and economical manner;
- (iii) Promoting researches and scientific and technological applications;
-( iiii) Boosting domestic consumption and exports
- (v) Raising manpower quality
- (vi) Developing equipment manufacturing capacity
-( vii) Protecting the environment during production time

Statistics showed that Viet Nam is currently the fifth biggest cement manufacturer in the world, after China, India, the US, and Russia. Its cement output has doubled within 10 years, from 45.5 million tons in 2009 to about 100 million tons.

The country ranks fifth in terms of cement production, but the cement export value is still low while this is an energy- and natural resource-intensive sector.

However, the sector is still facing difficulties and challenges, including low content of creativity and added value in products, lack of new products able to compete with regional and global rivals, and insufficient attention to research and development./.
