Technology to assist Vietnam with water solutions E-mail

A delegation of Israeli business executives was in Vietnam in February, and visited the Mekong Delta province of Ben Tre to explore co-operation opportunities in some water and treatment technology-related sectors.

Boaz Zadik, CEO of Arrow Technologies, said his company is looking for investment opportunities in Vietnam. Arrow Technologies has been undertaking projects in India and Africa for 30 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 country. 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 the long term.”

Dr Ngo Ke Xuong, an agricultural expert, said he is intrigued by Israel. “A country with sand and desert can export tomatoes, cucumbers and mangoes. It is amazing! Vietnam should get technologies from Israel. Adoption of technology in agriculture is inevitable because we are under pressure from an increasing population and limited land.”
