Israel seeks govt, pvt sector cooperation with Punjab in dairy farming, agriculture, police training

Israel seeks govt, pvt sector cooperation with Punjab in dairy farming, agriculture, police training

New Delhi, Apr 21 (UNI) Israel today showed interest in strengthening cooperation with Punjab on a wide range of subjects, including exchange of technology, police and security training, agriculture & irrigation, dairy farming, as well as promotion of private investment in the state. At a meeting between Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh and Israel Ambassador to India Daniel Carmon, the two sides decided to explore the possibility of setting up Punjab-Israel working groups for continuous dialogue on issues of mutual interest. The Chief Minister promised to take up the matter with the External Affairs Ministry, after the Israeli envoy suggested the formation of such groups for long-term cooperation, according to Raveen Thukral, Media Advisor to the Punjab Chief Minister. The Israeli Ambassador told Capt Singh that his country was interested in expanding ties with Punjab beyond government-to-government relations by extending business opportunities for the Israeli private sector. He also showed interest in technological cooperation, with the possibility of setting up an IT and communications hub in Punjab, which Capt Singh said could be an important area of mutual growth. The Chief Minister was keen to involve the private sector, as he had done during his previous tenure in innovating new ways to boost irrigation and improve the yields of farmers with small holdings by encouraging them to shift towards horticulture. The Israeli Ambassador pointed out that several Israeli companies were engaged in augmenting crop yield through innovative measures aimed at ensuring ‘more crop per drop.’ More UNI DB SW 1524
