The Bamboo industry is a growing sector that offers various opportunities for learning and earning. Bamboo is a versatile and sustainable resource that can be used for a wide range of products, including furniture, flooring, construction materials, textiles, and paper. Bamboos are a potential alternative as well to traditional lumber and hardwood in the furniture business because of their quick growth and maturity in three to five years. Since bamboo can be harvested frequently, the return on investment is also much quicker, making it an appealing and sustainable community project, even for small farmers.
In addition to its economic value, bamboo plays a significant role in the global effort to combat climate change. Here are some ways you can learn, innovate and earn in the Bamboo industry: Bamboo Farming, Bamboo Product Manufacturing, Bamboo Crafts and Art, Bamboo Research and Development and Bamboo Tourism.
ECCP apart from being a membership organization, the Chamber takes pride in organizing sector-driven events in line with our advocacies. As part of our ongoing initiatives on Bamboo, the ECCP is hosting a webinar entitled, "SUSTAINABLE MARKET: Learn, Innovate and Earn in the Bamboo Industry" on May 31, 2023 from 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM (PST) via Zoom. The aim of this virtual forum is to feature and explore the bamboo industry both as a business and a research venue for stakeholders from the government, academe, and the private sector. With bamboo being the fastest-growing plant in the world, it is an under-attended source of investment opportunities – one that promises three major business merits: resilience, versatility, and rapid replenishment of stocks.
