 “Grow Local , Bloom  Global ” focuses on several factors like promoting local plant and horticulture industry,  buying local produce and local plants. This also encourages ordinary backyard growers and propagators to propagate more endemic, indigenous and local plants.  There are so many endemic and indigenous ornamental plants , flowers and trees which are found in the country . These have a lot of demands abroad.

This is a big income potentials for a country which only had .02% of the world’s floriculture industry share.
