Thai Nguyen (VNA) – A workshop discussing closed agricultural solutions for farmers was held on October 22 in the northern province of Thai Nguyen by the provincial People’s Committee and the Israeli Embassy in Vietnam.

In his speech at the event, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Duong Van Luong briefed participants on geographical features, socio-economic development, potential and strengths of Thai Nguyen for agricultural development.

He expressed his hope that via the workshop, local enterprises, farmers, and agricultural production cooperatives will be introduced and supported in implementing closed agricultural models for farmers through Israel’s high-tech engineering model.

Cooperation activities between partners of Thai Nguyen and Israel will be an important foundation for the Vietnamese locality, the embassy, and Israel partners to build long-term cooperation relationships during the time to come, he said.

Israel Ambassador Nadav Eshcar highly valued the recent cooperation between the two countries in general and between Thai Nguyen and Israel in particular in the fields of education-training and trade, saying that he hopes the collaboration between the two sides will be further strengthened in the future, especially in hi-tech agriculture.

Israel is willing to support Thai Nguyen in introducing new and modern technologies to local farmers, he affirmed.

Over the last five years, Thai Nguyen has cooperated with Israel in education-training and research. Particularly, since 2014, the Thai Nguyen University has sent nearly 900 students to Israel for internships in high-tech agriculture.

In 2020, the Thai Nguyen University of Agriculture and Forestry received an automatic and economical watering system in net house for intensive cultivation of vegetables and flowers funded by the Israeli government.
 
At the seminar, Israeli agri-businesses introduced hi-tech agricultural models such as family-scale greenhouse; irrigation system for farm house, and equipment to turn organic waste into electricity.

Previously, the ambassador and representatives of Thai Nguyen province cut the ribbon to launch the automatic and economical watering system in net house at the Thai Nguyen University of Agriculture and Forestry. This project has a total budget of over 20,000 USD, with half funded by the Israeli government./.
