75 Indian Villages Will Be Developed With Israeli Assistance
Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, who has been in Israel for four days on official business since May 8, met with his Israeli counterpart Oded Forer at the Knesset on Wednesday.
According to a statement from the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, they discussed various issues related to modern agro techniques, capacity building, knowledge transfer, and support in the fields of agriculture, water management, environment, and rural development, while keeping in mind the scope and potential of agriculture development in both countries.
75 Indian villages will be built with Israeli assistance to commemorate the country's 75th anniversary of independence, according to Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar.
As India and Israel mark 30 years of diplomatic relations, the visiting minister stated that the ongoing bilateral partnership would be strengthened through "mutual visits and sharing of experiences." The two countries actively cooperate in technology, trade, and innovation.
The Agriculture Minister also praised Israel for its expertise in water management and said that the knowledge transfer from Israel to India would be strengthened through collaboration with cutting-edge agro-technologies. He emphasized that India's agricultural growth depends on increased investment in research and development, particularly in water management.
With the joint effort of both countries, these 75 villages will be built innovatively to develop modern infrastructure, improve access to services such as healthcare and education, and provide employment opportunities for rural communities. It is expected that this project will lead to better living standards and improved quality of life for the people.
This initiative will also symbolise the strong bond between India and Israel, and is expected to be completed within the next five years. Overall, this project is a testament to the potential for cooperation between India and Israel and its positive impact on rural communities. It further strengthens the diplomatic ties between both nations.
The Indian government is also keen to learn from the experience of Israel to bring about a transformative change in India's agricultural sector and rural economy through sustainable development projects.
The 75 villages project will be an essential step towards achieving this goal. It is hoped that the mutual understanding between both countries will grow stronger as they explore the possibilities of agro-innovations, technology transfer and collaboration in other areas in the future.
We look forward to a successful partnership between India and Israel that will bring about significant development in rural communities.
