Papua New Guinea beekeeping

Beekeeping is growing in the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea where locals are asking for technical assistance from the government. The local association of 200 people had nine beehives, recently increased to 20. This is not hobbyist beekeeping, it's an economic enterprise.

The National (where this story appeared) has a curious website for a newspaper -- it took me six clicks to find out in what country it's based.
