Honey, I grew the economy!

Pakistan is now claiming to be self-sufficient in honey and now exports to the Gulf countries. There are nearly a quarter of a million known colonies and annual yields per colony are estimated to be 4kg to 21kg. They seem to be promoting beekeeping as a profession and encouraging women beekeepers.

Meanwhile Bulgaria plans to double its number of honeybee colonies by 2007 when it is due to enter the European Union.
