Making a pitch for developing the tourism industry, Israeli Ambassador to India Daniel Carmon said it was important to increase the number of direct flights between the two countries.

"To develop tourism, it is important to increase the number of direct flights from India to Israel," he said.

Israel was keen on extended partnership with the country, especially in the Southern region, Carmon said after calling on Chief Minister O Panneerselvam at the Secretariat.

After making a visit to the Nemmeli Desalination plant situated near Chennai, in which an Israel-based company had provided the technology, Carmon said that greater co-operation was possible between the two countries in water treatment sector.

Extending his invitation to the Global Investors Meet scheduled to be held in May, Panneerselvam expressed hope that Israel would accept it and be a Partner-Nation for the two-day event.

Some areas that could be possible for strengthening trade relations include pharmaceuticals, agriculture, IT, telecommunication and security related products, he said.

Stating that Tamil Nadu was covered under the Indo-Israel Bilateral agreement for cooperation in agriculture, he said, "India-Israel Centres of Excellence for cooperation in agriculture are being set up, including two Centres in Tamil Nadu- at Reddiarchatram in Dindigul district and Thally in Krishnagiri district".

Tamil Nadu has also benefited from Israeli expertise and technology in the area of horticulture mechanisation, protected cultivation, orchard and canopy management, nursery management and post-harvest management, he said.
