In his address, Israeli Ambassador Nadav Eshcar emphasised that the relationship between the two countries has been growing rapidly since the establishment of their diplomatic ties 25 years ago. The display of Israel’s unique and pioneering technologies at the exhibition reflects the similarities between the two sides in the field of innovation and is evidence of a vision for bilateral cooperation in high-tech education, agriculture and science, he said. For his part, Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee, Nguyen Duc Chung, stated that the exhibition will provide the public in Hanoi in particular, and in Vietnam as a whole, a panorama of Israel, especially its vertical rice farming techniques, remote control drip irrigation, and atmospheric water generation technologies. These advanced technologies could be a source of research and application for Vietnam and Hanoi in order to take alternative measures to transform the appearance of urban districts and enhance the possibility of high-tech farming in Vietnam’s urban areas, Chung added. On the occassion, the Hanoi mayor thanked Israel’s Watergen company for presenting the city with two atmospheric water generators, which have a capacity of producing 700 litres of water per day. The “Israel in the heart of Hanoi” exhibition features photos on Israel, a display of vertical rice farming, remote control drip irrigation and atmospheric water generation technologies, and unique arts performances imbued with Israel’s traditional identities.
