Domestic market needs to manufacture products made from water hyacinth

With a lack of techniques for transforming water hyacinth into value-added products and a small number of makers, the moribund business of water hyacinth products requires improvements to formulate a healthy domestic market, according to the Myanmar Forest Products Merchants Federation (MFPMF).

There is already an export market for high-end products made from water hyacinths, but there are only one or two entrepreneurs engaged in this industry.

The MFPMF is reportedly implementing a water hyacinth and rubber development project. The federation opened the first batch of basic courses for manufacture value-added products from rubber and water hyacinths on 12th December in North Dagon Township, Yangon Region, with 30 trainees.

The course aims to produce workers who can manufacture the value-added products of water hyacinth such as tables, chairs, handbags, etc. The talented workers will have an opportunity to also undertake design courses, it is learnt.
