Philippines Foreign Affairs Secretary Visits Israel

For the first time in 20 years the Philippines Foreign Affairs Secretary is visiting Israel. To mark this event the Philippines Department of Foreign Affairs issued a Press Release highlighting the central areas of cooperation between the two nations.


One of the central issues has been development cooperation, mainly agriculture studies, and Agrostudies receives a warm mention as over 1000 Philippino students have graduated from the program since its inception.

Here is a quote from the PR:

“One of the pillars of Philipines-Israel relations is development cooperation through the Philippines-Israel Center for Agriculture Studies (PICAT) and the Granot Agrostudies program. Through these programs, Filipinos learn from Israel’s expertise in agriculture technology and advanced farming techniques. Since 2006, more than a thousand students from 26 Philippine colleges and universities have graduated from the Granot Agrostudies program.”
