He said that the BTH-Pilot Phase project has been successfully executed by the university after organizing this workshop.
He said 35 beekeepers have been trained for modern beekeeping and outcomes have provided a sound basis for the preparation of a nationwide mega project “Apiculture Scaling-up Programme for Income and Rural Employment”.
