Based on the MoU signed between International Sericultural Commission and SAARC Agriculture Centre (SAC), Dhaka, Bangladesh, a Joint Sericulture Development Project would be taken up for the development of Sericulture and Silk Industry in Nepal, Bangladesh and India. In order to develop the Sericulture Project, ISC and SAC have decided to undertake evaluation studies in these countries by utilizing the services of three ISC volunteer experts.
A three member ISC Volunteer Experts Team has undertaken the evaluation study on the status of sericulture and silk Industry in Bangladesh during January 2017. The Team has already submitted the Evaluation Report which would help in formulating the project. After the enrollment of Nepal as a Member Country, ISC has deputed the three member Volunteer Expert Team to the sericulture areas and facilities of Nepal from 13th to 18th of July, 2017. The Team has now successfully completed the Evaluation Study and is in the process of preparing the report.
