Sericulture, as a cottage industry, can play an important role in the well-being of deprived rural populations and eventually foster the growth of the economy. The Pakistan sericulture industry experienced abundant growth and progress during early decades of independence. Currently, however, this industry is almost defunct. Acknowledging the importance of the issue, this study explores past experience to formulate policy to stabilize the sericulture industry of Pakistan. This study is based on qualitative data.
