Israel today expressed desire to collaborate with Goa on the Smart City project and in several other sectors, and also take part in the ‘Defexpo’ to be held in the coastal state next year.
“The Israeli Government plans to work together with Goa in various areas like agriculture, Smart City, eco-tourism and business,” said Daniel Carmon, Ambassador of Israel.
Carmon, on his first visit to Goa, was talking to media persons at Porvorim near here. He was accompanied by Israel’s Consul General David Akov.
“As part of an initiative with Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India, we have developed centres of excellence with our Indian counterparts. Twenty-six such centres in agriculture have come up in ten states.
“As of now, Goa is not in the list of states which have such a centre. But, we are talking with Goa Government to create a centre for excellence here as well,” he said.
