BẾN TRE — A delegation of Israeli business executives visiting the Mekong Delta province of Bến Tre to explore co-operation opportunities in many sectors has said Israeli technologies can be applied anywhere in the world.

The application does not depend on workers’ skill, they said.

Boaz Zadik, CEO of Arrow Technologies, said his company is looking for investment opportunities in Việt Nam.

In his country, a large quantity of water is treated and reused, he said.

His company has been undertaking projects in India and Africa for  三0 years and is ready to tie up with Vietnamese companies, he said.

Other executives also hoped to tie up with Vietnamese companies and transfer technology to the latter.

Bar Sharon, marketing director of Argos Company, said: “We will transfer technology and show Vietnamese companies how to use it … so that they can develop steadily for long.”

Dr Ngô Kế Xương, an agricultural expert, said he is intrigued by Israel.

“A country with sand and desert can export tomato, cucumber and mango. It is amazing!”

“Việt Nam should get technologies from Israel. Adoption of technology in agriculture is inevitable because we are under pressure from an increasing population and limited land.”

Huỳnh Kỳ Trân, director of Thorakao Cosmetic, said Israeli companies are good.

“In future we will co-operate with them to make more new products.”

Nguyễn Kim Lan, chairman of Incomex Sài Gòn, said: “By meeting with Israeli companies, I have obtained new knowledge about clean agriculture. There is a lot of knowledge about technology and skill to ensure high yields and keep the environment clean.”

Israel is the only country in the world that has been able to roll back the desert. It is the leader in recycling water, recycling a total of  七0 per cent. — VNS
