The International Sericultural Commission will hold the 23rd ISC Congress at Bangalore, India from 24-27 November, 2014. The Congress expects the participation of about 350 delegates from about 70 countries.

The Congress in 2014 would be particularly important considering the fact that there are significant opportunities available now to introduce and develop sericulture and silk industry as an ideal additional means of income for inclusive development in many of the developing countries.

Keeping this important aspect in mind, the ISC has specifically requested international agencies and financial institutions to depute their representatives to the Congress and participation of some of these agencies has already been confirmed. The Congress will host region and sector specific parallel sessions for the benefit of country representatives.

This is also aimed at enlightening delegates on various technical and procedural aspects of sourcing multilateral assistance for taking up project related activities in their respective countries.

The Congress would also witness the introduction of a new section namely; Silk Processing, Trading and Marketing. This section would cover all the activities in silk processing, import, export, silk consumption, global demand, market and promotion.

The activities under this section are currently being looked after by the erstwhile International Silk Association (ISA). ISC felt it necessary to establish an organic linkage with all the stakeholders to ensure that the various requirements and issues of the industry are discussed and resolved in an equitable manner.

Another important event to be organized on the sidelines of the Congress is an International Exhibition of Silk Products by the Silk Mark Organization of India (SMOI). The SMOI is an initiative of the Government of India intending to promote the purity of silk through the Silk Mark Label.

The exhibition would provide a unique opportunity to showcase the various types of silk products among a diverse international group expected to attend the Congress.

Ms. Ishita Roy an IAS officer and Secretary General of International Sericultural Commission says, “All those associated with the silk industry like; policy planners, technocrats, international scientists, universities, faculty & students of Institutions of research in mulberry and non-mulberry silkworms, host-plants, post-cocoon technology, silk processing, promotion, biotechnology, sericulture management & economies, etc., including those in silk and silk related businesses will find the ISC Congress interesting as it will help them to interact, share and exchange the most recent advancements in sericulture and silk industry”.
