RESEARCH IN AGGIE LIFE
My First International Conference
Finland is currently the happiest country in the world@overtaking Norway and ahead of Denmark and Iceland. For years, I had been dreaming of ways to make more affordable building materials. I had encountered clients who were scraping to achieve their dreams of building a house. Slowly I came to understand that building was a gift. Many had resources but were not interested and some had a little but went at length to erect a structure. For the latter, a way to provide streams of resources to achieve their dreams is necessary. The construction industry accounts for 13% of the world@s gross domestic product (GDP) and is expected to increase to 15% by 2020.
