Djibouti is a nice country we have been there and we will set up a factory in Addis Ababa and with a railway we can supply in that region including Djibouti. We are for 5 months in operation of the factory which is run by local Rwanda team. Our strawboard production are on international standard quality far better than we do in Europe.
