Mar 4, 2022 @ 10:46

The municipal government of Los Baños was happy to host Israeli Ambassador to the Philippines Ilan Fluss.

Fluss recently visited Los Baños as part of efforts to strengthen cooperation with the Philippines, particularly on agriculture.

The University of the Philippines Los Baños campus is the center of agriculture studies in the country.

“Ilan sa mga mahahalagang inisyatibong nais ng bansang Israel na mapalakas ay ang kooperasyon nito sa Department of Agriculture para sa pagbabahagi ng mga pang-agrikultural na teknolohiya at mga inobasyon,” the Los Baños government said on Facebook.

Israel also wants to implement programs on agrostudies and to train Filipinos, it said.

Some 400 Filipinos are currently participating in an internship program or agrostudies in Israel to improve their knowledge of smart agriculture and farming for commercial purposes.

“Kasama sa mga pagsasanay na ito ang patungkol sa agrikultura, pangkalusugan, pagnenegosyo, inobasyon at marami pang iba,” it said.

These programs would greatly benefit Los Baños whose main industry is agriculture, the local government said.

Israel also wants to improve economic ties and trade with the Philippines, it said.

Los Baños Mayor Antonio Kalaw pledged support to Israel’s programs, especially those that would help the town.
