PIA Press Release

Israeli ambassador visits Sagay City

Bacolod City (19 November) -- Ambassador of Israel to the Philippines, Zvi Avenir Vapni with Yeshayahu Stern, Head of Agricultural Projects in Africa, Asia and Oceania, Centre for International Agricultural Development Cooperation recently visited Sagay City to see and explore the different areas they can cooperate and be of help to its people.

During his courtesy call with Mayor Leo Rafael M. Cueva, Vice Mayor Kent M. Javelosa and other city officials, Ambassador Vapni said he feels that Israel could be of help in the area of agricultural technology. He said he is interested with the city's Dairy Farm where he can assist in its expansion program and link them to different companies who would like to do business with them.

On the basis of cooperation, he said they need to hear from us so they would know what we need and counterpart it with expertise that best fits our needs. He said Sagay can either send its representative to Israel to learn its technology requirement with other Asian countries or bring experts here to teach relevant technology.

He has observed that the Province of Negros Occidental is a good candidate for Israel to extend agricultural technology that it needs. He also said that though Negros Occidental has vast sugarcane fields, it would be advantageous if we still have other crops to propagate during off season. For him diversification is a good recommendation to consider and implement in our area for the benefit of our farmers.

Ambassador Vapni and Mr. Stern visited the Dairy Farm, OPTION-MPC, the muscovado sugar mill in Sagay, Museo sang Bata sa Negros and had lunch at Carbin Reef where a green sea turtle caught earlier was released. (PIO/PIA/cad) [top]
