Chairman and founder of Build Expo, Dwight Crawford, has disclosed that one of the main emphasis of the the second annual staging of the event will be hemp’s potential contribution towards affordable housing solutions.
Build Expo 2018 will be staged at the Montego Bay Convention Centre, St James, from June 8 -11.
“We want to demonstrate to Jamaicans and people in the wider Caribbean region that attractive, functional and affordable housing solutions are nearer at hand than most would think,” Crawford noted.
He added: “More importantly, we are committed to making the argument that nation-building and wealth creation have their foundations rooted in building development activities; that there are dramatic and fundamental differences between the spend of earnings on consumer goods and the spend on real property. Beauty, fashion and entertainment burn money; building and development are storehouses of money that appreciate and build wealth.”
He was speaking at the launch of the expo at the H&L Rapid True Value lounge in Montego Bay last Wednesday.
