DIVERSIFICATION SUB-SECTOR: PART 1
Pyrethrum, Sericulture, Stevia and Essential oils.
The diversification sub-sector works with diversified products which are the newly adopted product chains that have demonstrated the export potentiality. They include cereals, pulses, roots & tubers, banana meat, hides and skin, milk, honey, pyrethrum essential oils, silkworm cocoons and dried stevia leaves.
Rwanda has been emphasizing on sensitizing potential stakeholders to be involved in farming and export of these product chains as well as placing relevant emphasis on ways to improve, increase and monitor the export of these products.
A conducive environment for attracting exports and investment in this sector has been created for these particular targeted agricultural exports that promote diversification into new products as well as adding value to already existing ones.
