“Silk For The Green World”

Silk is the most important animal fiber known to

mankind. Silk fabrics are famous throughout the world for their lustrous appearance and smooth surface and recent years have seen an increased demand for silk products in the world market. This has led to the fact that sericulture is currently practiced in more than 40 countries around the world; with ASEAN being the main source of silk for the world.

It is a great honour for Thailand to host the “ASEAN

collaboration on Sericulture Research and Development” during 6-10 August 2009. The prime objective of the ASEAN Collaboration is to encourage and promote the development and improvement of sericulture among ASEAN member countries.

About the ASEAN Collaboration

to provide a pre workshop (round table) from all ASEAN member countries, to exchange knowledge and ideas on sericulture, and to discuss future cooperation in sericultural development, during 10-13 March 2009 at Amari Watergate Hotel, Bangkok.

Conference during 6-10 August 2009 in Bangkok,

will consist of a sericulture overview in each ASEAN country presented by the delegate of that country; a presentation on the sericultural research of each country; and a visit to the “Art of the Kingdom” at Ananda Samakhom Throne Hall.
