Cabinet apprised of India-Japan MoU for Collaborative Research in Silkworm & Silk Industries

The Union Cabinet was yesterday apprised of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between Central Silk Board (CSB), India and National Institute of Agrobiological Sciences (NIAS), Japan for collaborative research in the field of silkworm and silk industries.
The MoU was signed on November 11, 2016, between CSB and NIAS for initiating collaborative research for developing prolific bivoltine hybrids of silkworm suitable for the Indian tropical conditions. 
The MoU is of scientific and technological nature. It would help in developing prolific hybrid silkworms, which would improve the manufacturing capacity and the quality standards of the Indian sericulture industry and thereby enhance exports of silk and silk products, an official press release said.
It is expected that subsequent to the MoU, the Indian textiles and apparel industry would be able to produce world class silk and silk products. The improvement of quality and productivity would ultimately increase export of silk products, the release added.
