Japanese gentians sprout in RwandaBetween July 2017 and March 2018, flowers worth $2.8 million were exported from Rwanda, officials from the National Agricultural Export Development Board (NAEB) said on Monday.
The officials said the volume of flower exports has increased from the previous exports worth $1.2 million in the 2016-2017 fiscal year, and they are expected to increase thanks to more investments that are coming in.
The figures were shared during the export promotion ceremony at the Japanese ambassador’s residence for the first Made-in-Rwanda gentians, which will start to be exported to Europe next month.
The flower project in Rwanda was established in partnership with Hachimantai city in Japan and is operated by Bloom Hills Rwanda Ltd.
It aims at exporting 430,000 stems per season to Amsterdam by 2020.
According to Amb. George Kayonga, the chief executive officer of NAEB, the investment will contribute to doubling flower exports from Rwanda by building a solid flower industry.
He said the first export target will be worth 400,000 euros.
