Speaking at the event, Mr. Yahel Vilan, Israel's Deputy Ambassador to India, said, "Israel is proud of what it has achieved together with our Indian partners in a short span of time. Both our countries share each other's experience. We share values as well as challenges with India in fields of HLS, Water, Trade, Agriculture, Dairy and many others. We view India as an important partner. We look forward to enhance relations in every possible field.

"We're working with India in Agriculture since 2006 when both countries signed a cooperation agreement that today includes 28 centers in 9 states, done through MASHAV, Israel's Agency for International Development Cooperation. We're about to enter the 3rd phase of this agreement that will include even more cooperation. Our concept is to make Israeli Agro-technology applicable to the needs of the Indian farmers."
