Rwanda - Economic Benefits and Positive Investment Enviroment (CNBC TV Report)
STRAWTEC has created a local value chain from raw material supply to turnkey housing units leading to the following economic benefits:
Income generation, positive impact on balance of trade, reduction in affordable housing shortage, skills development and job creation.
STRAWTEC has a unique concept to establish local, self-sufficient manufacturing facilities to produce robust strawboard panels, which then serve as the primary building material for mass-housing and commercial construction projects. The innovative and easy-to-manage production technology employs local labour and locally grown, renewable resources.
STRAWTEC has identified Rwanda as the ideal entry point into the African market due to the sound leadership and effective economic reforms that have resulted in a positive investment environment, and the Government’s commitment to meeting future housing and construction demands.
