Ron Malka, Israel Ambassador to India, has said his country looks to strengthen ties with the Northeastern states and wants to share technology to enhance the manufacturing capability of the region.
“Israel is a strong strategic partner of India and wants to share technology with the Northeastern region for using untapped resources for development. We want to enhance manufacturing capabilities,” Malka told the media.
The ambassador was in Tripura for a two-day visit from Wednesday and met Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb.
“India is our close friend. Both countries pledged to help each other in the field of developments. Since the NorthEast is an integral part of India, we want to share high and advanced technologies, especially in the fields of manufacturing, packaging and shipping,” he said.
Malka mentioned that his country is also interested in an exchange of cultures between the two countries, and in developing air connectivity between Israel and Assam’s Guwahati. “The air connectivity would be developed, only after the Northeast region comes to a position to export its goods to Israel,” he said.
