Israel's consul general in Mumbai, David Akov, said that agricultural technology, startup companies, eco-tourism and cultural events will help strengthen ties between the two countries.

Akov had an interaction with Goa chamber of commerce and industry (GCCI) members in Panaji, where he spoke of dairy farming, vegetable and fruit cultivation, poultry and organic farming as areas of interest, from which Goa can benefit.

Akov was invited to Goa by the speaker of Goa legislative assembly Rajendra Arlekar when the two met in Mumbai.

Present at the conference were GCCI president Narayan Bandekar, vice-presdients Sandip Bhandare and Manoj Caculo, chairman of tourism committee Gaurish M Dhond, treasurer Pratima Dhond, secretary Ralph de Souza and past president of Manguirish N Pai Raiker.

During Akov's previous visit to Goa in 2014, he visited the state government-run farms alongside then chief minister Manohar Parrikar and identified a few areas of interest. Speaking to mediapersons on the sidelines of the interaction, he said that this time around too, he would like to follow up on the same.


Replying to questions from the media later, Akov stated that around 40,000 tourists from Israel annually visit India and most come to Goa. The conference was addressed by Sandip Bhandare, after a brief introduction by Arlekar.
