On May 20, the Union Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare will hold a large national event at Tent City-II, Ekta Nagar, Narmada, Gujarat. Union Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister Narendra Singh Tomar will launch it. On this occasion, the Honey Testing Lab and Processing Unit will be open to the public in seven locations.

Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar will perform the virtual inauguration. The main goal of this event is to promote beekeeping in order to benefit as many small farmers as possible.

The United Nations General Assembly has designated May 20 as World Bee Day in order to raise awareness of the critical role of bees and other pollinators in keeping people healthy and addressing various challenges in this regard.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given the slogan of sweet revolution inside honey to promote beekeeping in the country. In this regard, the Ministry of Agriculture has increased its efforts. In fact, the government is attempting to connect such farmers with beekeeping in order to increase their income.

With this in mind, the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare is commemorating this significant day by gathering all of the country's beekeepers to raise awareness.

The event's chief guest will be Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar. Special guests will include Union Minister of State for Agriculture Kailash Chaudhary and Shobha Karandlaje.

Beekeeper farmers, as well as processors, entrepreneurs, and other stakeholders involved in honey production, will take part in this programme.

During this time, an exhibition will be held with several stalls set up by beekeepers, processors, and other beekeeping stakeholders to showcase the various varieties and products available in the industry. Simultaneously, Indian Bank, the Madhukranti portal's implementing agency, will set up a stall to run a lifetime registration campaign for beekeepers in the Madhukranti portal.
