Committed to working with India, with its largest development projects, Israel continues to expand cooperation with all its partners in the country, enhancing the strategic partnership between the two nations simultaneously.

Currently, Israel has 29 fully-active Indo-Israeli Centers of Excellence in different parts of India, which are benefiting millions of Indian farmers daily. Thirteen more such centers are in the pipeline. Gradually these centers will be expanded into ‘Villages of Excellence in partnership with local state governments, which will further prove beneficial for larger populations.

Working towards the same goal, Ms. Eynat Shlein, the head of MASHAV, toured Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan during her visit to India. She met with senior government officials and local farmers and also visited Indo-Israeli Centers of Excellence, established under the framework of the Indo-Israel Agricultural Project (IIAP).

In Lucknow, she held a bilateral meeting with UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath as both sides had an extensive discussion about enhancing the existing cooperation and future joint projects in water management and agriculture. One of the main highlights of this visit was the signing of a joint declaration between the State of Israel and the Irrigation and Water Resources Department, Government of Haryana, India in the field of integrated water resources management and capacity building. As part of this joint declaration, Israel will share knowledge, capacity building, and Israeli technologies for the development of Haryana in the water management sector.
