Tanzania will host the 50th World Congress of Beekeepers in 2027, an official announced Tuesday.

Angellah Kairuki, minister of natural resources and tourism, said the congress to be held in Tanzania’s northern city of Arusha will attract more than 6,000 delegates from across the globe.

Kairuki told a news conference in Dar es Salaam, the commercial hub of Tanzania, that the congress will be organized by the International Federation of Beekeepers’ Associations (APIMONDIA) to bring together beekeepers, scientists, honey traders, agents for development, technicians, and legislators to listen, discuss and learn from one another.

Kairuki urged Tanzanian beekeepers to use the congress to promote the beekeeping business.

According to the Tanzania Forest Services Agency, the East African country produces at least 30,400 tonnes of honey annually, but plans are underway to increase production to 60,000 tonnes in 2025.

The APIMONDIA is a non-governmental organization that brings together beekeepers, manufacturers of beekeeping equipment, and a wide variety of scientists involved in apiculture, pollination, development, and economics. Google news.
