A number of beekeepers attended a workshop on beekeeping held at Millaniya Secretariat recently. A leading expert on beekeeping in Sri Lanka Dr. R.W.K. Punchihewa conducted the workshop.
The workshop was organized by the JVP Provincial Council Member Nandana Pushpakumara. Modern methods of beekeeping were discussed and a structure was discussed to form an organization to promote beekeeping and assist the beekeepers in the district.
Dr. Punchihewa stressed that beekeeping is an economically sustaining industry and if properly managed could stop millions in foreign exchange to the country.
