Ananas-udstillingen ved Agritech 9. maj 2018

Agritech Israel 2018 , the 20th “International Agricultural Technology Exhibition”, is one of the world’s most important exhibitions in the field of agricultural technology. The exhibition took place on May 8-10, 2018 at the Israel Exhibition and Congress Center in Tel Aviv. The theme for 2018 was agriculture in deserts and desert-like areas. The exhibitors and speakers have presented and discussed local, national and multinational solutions.

Everyone involved in production, marketing, research and development, as well as everyone involved in the various agricultural sectors, both directly and indirectly, was welcome to participate in the Agritech event. Also – of course! Palestinians.

Thus, on May 9, 500 Palestinian farmers came from Gaza and the West Bank (Judea and Samaria). Their travels between the territories and Israel were coordinated by the Civil Administration COGAT (“Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories”).

Samir Muadi, head of the Civil Administration’s Agricultural Unit stated:

“The participation of the Palestinians is an example of the mutual cooperation between Israelis and Palestinians and is very important for the Palestinian farmers to gain knowledge and develop their agriculture. … Ultimately, this will lead to the development of the Palestinian economy. “

Ole Groth-Andersen has written: “It therefore deserves some attention, why I would suggest that this information be shared so that it reaches very far into the Danish population, and deep into the core of all the Israeli hateful politicians who lean up of Hamas, as was the Ritzau “. Thanks to Ole for the suggestion!
