To promote the diversified development of characteristic breeding industries of Gonggar County, Shannan City, southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region, the aid-Tibet task force of Changsha City actively promotes the benign development of beekeeping industry through using local good ecological environment and holding beekeeping skill training, so as to increase income channels of local farmers and herdsmen.

At present, there are 8 beekeeping demonstration bases in Gonggar County. The total number of swarms is more than 700, and the annual output of honey is about 15 tons. Beekeeping alone can bring nearly one million yuan RMB in annual revenue to local villagers.

In the next step, Gonggar County will set up a professional beekeeping cooperative and register a beekeeping company, so as to promote the development of beekeeping in the form of "company + farmers" and promote targeted poverty alleviation.
