Yemeni Beekeepers Urged to Form Associations

Honey Industry Gains Higher Dimensions
Yemen Times, 12/25/05

SANA'A, Dec. 25 - The production of Yemeni honey is rated at an annual total of 1706 tons as reported by the Ministry of Agriculture in its latest report. Seventeen percent of the quantity produced is exported to neighboring and foreign countries generating an income of $ 9 million. . .

More interesting is that the honey sector is encouraged to create its own associations and networks. This would be considered as a significant step in professional this industry and including it in the organized sector of the national economy. The creation of such associations as mentioned by the beekeepers would assist in marketing their products and beekeeping tools. In addition, a database of the beekeeping industry and relevant information will be created during the project implementation.
