Indian honey boom?

India is making more noise about its increase in honey exports:
Indian honey exports, which have risen from the levels of 100 tonnes in 1997 to 10,000 tonnes by end of 2002, is estimated to exceed 30,000 tonnes by 2007-08.
Now that the ban on Chinese honey exports to Europe has been lifted, can the existing figures be sustained never mind the targets met? (There have been suspicions that Chinese honey was finding its way onto the world market via India.)

Nonetheless, over 200 new projects with an investment of 2 billion Rupees “are envisaged” and expected to generate over 100,000 jobs.
