Seven ministers and many other top officials from over a dozen Western African countries at an agricultural conference in Israel this week.


The conference which began on Monday, entitled “Enhancing Sustainable Agricultural Productivity in Arid and Semi-Arid Regions" will be a 3-day summit.


“During the conference, the ministers and delegates will learn about agricultural technology produced in Israel, with an emphasis on dealing with arid climatic conditions, a topic which African agriculture ministers are particularly interested in due to a similar climate prevailing in their countries,” said Jonathan Blum, a spokesperson for Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel, who will address the group.
