Hanoi wants Israeli firms who always pioneer in applying science and technology in agricultural production to cooperate with and support the city in hi-tech farming. This was said by Vice Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Nguyen Doan Toan at the November 7 conference attended by officials of the committee and the Israeli Embassy in Vietnam. They are also part of activities to celebrate the 25th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties.
Israel is a country that possesses a modern and creative agriculture sector that has made significant achievements, given the country’s harsh natural conditions such as lack of fresh water and high desertification.
According to the Vietnamese official, in recent years, the city has enhanced the application of technologies in producing, storing and processing agricultural products, but the work has remained modest. There are still few hi-tech agriculture projects in the city, while post-harvest products haven’t been stored and processed in ways that meet requirements.
At the event, representatives from Israeli businesses shared their experience in hi-tech application in farming. Ilan London, Israel-based Decco’s international sales manager: “We want to bring our vast know-how to Vietnam and help local producers achieve more quality products and find farther destination for exports. We are thinking of mutual partnerships. Our know-how and technologies are very unique and we have solutions and technologies for all kinds of fruit and vegetables.”
