The Apimondia Congress in Istanbul, Turkey

The Apimondia Congress in Istanbul, Turkey.

The Director of African Beekeepers, Mr Ernest Simeoni was privileged to participate in 45th Apimondia International Apiculture Congress held in Instabul, Turkey. The Congress is supported by Turkish Beekeeping Association (TAB) amongst other stakeholders.

The Congress offers a good opportunity to exchange experiences in various aspects and to discuss latest developments in the beekeeping world. The organising committee of this project is a very big team who has a dedicated preparation work since 2009 and are planning to use the latest interactive technologies in the sessions which gives more opportunity to share experiences and increase knowledge and competencies.
