The agency “Bashinform” has already reported about establishment of the “Bashkir Honey Association” in Ufa (http://www.bashinform.ru/news/340496/.
“For the first time the real power, able to protect the interests of both ordinary bee-keepers and big honey producers not by word of mouth but in deed, started working in Republic of Bashkortostan” – one of the Association’s organizers, the General Director of the company “Bashkir Bee-Gardens” Sergey Mulukov comments on this event – “Before that the whole work in sphere of bee-keeping for the last 12 years represented just active absorption of budget means by the only one state institution and awards, diplomas and cups from various exhibitions were the only result of this activity. We are sure the real result should be regarded as of paramount importance and budget means should come back to the Republic with the maximal effect”. In opinion of Sergey Mulukov the following indices should become the indicators of the Association’s efficiency: strengthening of the positions of the brand “Bashkir Honey” in Russia and abroad, opening of new workplaces in the countryside, the rise of tax intakes and honey export and the growth of the number of bee-families in the region.
“It’s high time to start moving step-by-step forward. We will lobby the interests of the “Bashkir Honey Association” on all levels and intend to establish our supervisory board in the Ministry of agriculture RB, the Ministry of industry and innovational development RB, Trade-Industry Chamber RB and in other state strictures. We are open to any dialogue and any form of cooperation and the main thing here is real results in our bee-keeping” – Sergey Mulukov stated to the news agency “Bashinform”.
