The Agricultural Branch - an integral part of hi-tech


05.06.2014

Greetings from The Economy Minister, MK Naftali Bennett

Israeli agriculture is synonymous worldwide with quality and ground-breaking technological innovation and we are proud of this.
90 percent of Israeli agricultural produce is marketed in Europe and there is no doubt that this is an important and significant growth engine for the Israeli economy. Products based on Israeli developments are sold in almost all the markets in the world.


The "Fresh Agro-Mashov 2014" Exhibition, which has now been held for 25 years in a row, is a great opportunity to display the best fresh produce as well as new developments. As demonstrated in the past, the exhibition is a unique meeting place which provides a professional platform and marketing exposure for growers, wholesalers, exporters and importers.


We at the Ministry of Economy, are aware of the great importance of increasing the ability of Israeli marketing to compete. The commercial attachés of the Ministry of Economy who are stationed in European markets play a leading role in the development of economic ties that result in transactions and also assist in all aspects of entering new markets and creating practical channels for leading European chains – their success is the success of Israeli produce.


The whole world is facing the significant challenge of producing enough food for the steadily- growing world population while, in contrast, the resources for agricultural growth are small. The only key to prevent a global hunger crisis lies in technological innovation and increasing crop yields. All this is possible with the use of innovative technologies for water, development of irrigation, genetic engineering, automation technology and robotics.
Agriculture is an integral part of the hi-tech world and in the future will occupy an increasingly significant part in the areas of innovation and development. Here is the opportunity for the Israeli economy and the "Jewish mind" - using brains to break out of the box and make the impossible happen.
Israel has the tools, the knowledge and the ability to continue leading the field of research and technological development and we are working to promote ideas and initiatives in this area both by the allocation of resources and through guidance, counseling and mentoring.


I wish us all a successful exhibition, useful meetings and the promotion of Israeli agriculture.

Yours,    

MK Naftali Bennett
The Economy Minister
