The MedBEESinessHubs capitalization project aims to support the economies of deprived rural communities in Cyprus, Egypt, Greece, Palestine and Italy by empowering and networking local people in creating, managing handicraft honeybee products businesses and the associated tourism services networks. 

Through coaching and capacity building in technical and business-oriented subjects, as well as through the provision of sub-grants, the project will attempt to provide new jobs through the setting up of micro-SMEs, bee-businesses, that can create value from honeybee products by adding their individual art of craft and design.

The project supports an ecological resource with simultaneous potential economic contributions to small business development in the sectors of agrifood, cosmetics and tourism.

The project entitled “Mediterranean Bee Hubs in support for sustainable economic prosperity in deprived rural areas” (MedBEESinessHubs), is co-funded by the EU under the ENI CBC MED Programme with a total budget of €1,110,609.71 and a co-financing of €999,548.74 (90%).  The MedBEESinessHubs project team is led by the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Cyprus), while it consists of five more partners: A.M. Filagrotiki Consultants (Cyprus), Confederation of Egyptian-European Business Associations (Egypt), Arab-Italian Cooperation Chamber (Italy), Chamber of Commerce, Industry & Agriculture Zahle & Bekaa (Lebanon), and Palestinian Businesswomen’s Association ASALA (Palestine).
