President Dr Arif Alvi has underlined the need for strengthening and facilitating the beekeeping sector of the country as it has great potential to generate employment opportunities and earn foreign exchange. He urged the need for improving the environmental conditions for beekeeping to increase the honey yield. He made these remarks while chairing a meeting on Ten Billion Tree Tsunami Programme (TBTTP), at Aiwan-e-Sadr, today. The meeting was attended by Minister for Climate Change/SAPM, Malik Amin Aslam, Vice Chancellor of University of Arid Agriculture and senior officials of the Government of Pakistan. Minister for Climate Change/SAPM briefed the meeting about the initiatives taken by his Ministry under TBTTP. He informed that TBTTP would greatly contribute to increasing the production of honey as well as improving environmental conditions of the country. He highlighted the steps taken for improving the honey-bee sector, eco-system and creating skill development opportunities for youth to engage them in economic activity. Appreciating the initiative taken by the Ministry of Climate Change, the President expressed the hope that plantation, under TBTTP, would not only boost the beekeeping sector but would also help in producing high quality of honey. He emphasized the need to use modern beekeeping gears and training of beekeepers on modern lines to increase honey yield.
