Israel lures Africa with cutting-edge technologies

The Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, has said his country would use her cutting-edge technologies aimed at the improvement of agriculture to win more friends across the continent of Africa, ITRealms reports.

Netanyahu said this while visiting Israel’s crop pavilion at the World Expo in Milan, where he stated that cooperation with Italy in Africa is significant and would be top of his agenda at talks with his Italian counterpart Matteo Renzi in Florence on Saturday.

The Israeli premier, who is on his first major overseas trip since being re-elected in June, said Israel’s pioneering role in areas such as drip-irrigation, water recycling and desalination made her perfectly equipped to help bolster food security in Africa and elsewhere.  

“We have ten times the population we had when the state was founded 67 years ago, and half the rainfall, yet we have no water problems because we were able to solve this with all these techniques,” he said. 

“Now we are prepared - and are already doing our share to take this information to people around the world so they can have water, they can have crops, they can have cows that produce more milk and many other things that offer betterment for mankind.

“Italy and Israel are today cooperating in one African country (Senegal) to better their agriculture. Why one? Why not twenty, why not thirty? If we pool our resources, our knowledge, our technology we can help many, many countries in Africa to not only better agriculture but to better life.”
