Israeli president boosts ag collaboration with India

During a visit to India, Israeli President Reuven Rivlin emphasised “B to B” (business to business) and “G to G” (government to government) relationships between India and Israel.

He said India could learn from the Israeli experience and knowledge in agriculture, water conservation and water cleaning techniques.

He hoped that Indo-Israel cooperation would be continued with the same pace and extended to other areas of mutual interest.

Rivlin reiterated that cooperation between both nations was now being expanded in the fields of agriculture, water and security.

“I see the future of the relationship between India and Israel as something going on not only between the government and administration, but between the people as well. I believe in the connection between the people of India and Israel and the understanding,” the Israeli President said.

“We have to take care of each other that will bring about a lot of cooperation, started 25 years ago. It is now being expanded to a level where no one can even foresee in all fields of agriculture and water,” he said.

“We are cooperating and not hiding any kind of business from each other as we are very open,” he stated. Rivlin is on a state visit to India, the first by an Israeli President in around 20 years.

India and Israel had signed agreements for an agricultural partnership in 2006, under which Israel had been sharing its best practices and knowledge, especially through drip irrigation and protected cultivation.
