Israel is setting up a “center of excellence” in Goa, providing technological solutions to agricultural issues, Israel’s consul general in Mumbai Davik Akov said on Saturday.
Goa, located in the West Indian region of the Konkan, is the country’s smallest state by area and fourth smallest by population.
“We have about 20 centers of excellence offering Israeli technology all over India, ” Akov told IANS at the opening of an Israeli film festival in Mumbai. He added: “We hope to have one in Goa. We are starting to work on this prospect.”
“We believe that Israeli technology can assist certain areas of interest to Goa, like agriculture and maybe once we look in-depth, we can start looking at other areas of cooperation between Israel and Goa, ” Akov said.
