Israel offers agri training to 540 Pinoys yearly
Israeli Ambassador Effie Ben Matityau has reiterated his country’s offer to give on-the-job training on agriculture in Israel to 540 Filipinos every year.
Sunstar reported that Matityau repeated the offer to Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol during a dinner reception last week.
“We aim that every Filipino graduate of our program becomes quality managers and leaders in agriculture combining also the skills they learned here in the Philippines,” Matityau was quoted as saying.
Israel is known as a producer of quality agricultural products.
Matityau said fresh produce from Iloilo have market potentials in Japan, Korea, China and Taiwan.
He said Israel has a mandatory insurance system, subsidies, and access to finance for farmers.
