As part of the training, in which Turkey’s technical experience was shared with Algerian specialists, Algerian participants were informed about the production and collection of advanced bee products such as propolis, royal jelly, and pollen; processing analysis and techniques; the production of halal propolis; and the activities of TÜBİTAK.

In his statement, Dr. Alparslan Çevik, TİKA’s Algeria Coordinator, noted that this training was just the beginning and that they would train Algerian specialists in Turkey on the production of halal propolis in particular, when the pandemic is over.

In his statement, Prof. Tahar Sahraoui, Deputy Director of the Center for Scientific Research of Algeria, noted that they had been carrying out many activities with TİKA and wanted to improve this cooperation, especially in the production sector.
