Israel & UAE sign MOU to cooperate on agrotech and research & development

Yesterday, Israeli Agriculture Minister Oded Forer and United Arab Emirates Defense Minister Miriam Al-Mahiri signed a historic Memorandum of Understanding between the two countries. The agreement includes cooperation in research and development, exchange and use of fruit and vegetable varieties that meet desert conditions, building applied capabilities in aquaculture and inland agriculture, advanced technologies in water management for irrigation, and more.

This latest agreement is another outcome of the Abraham Accords brokered by then-US President Donald Trump and signed last September at the White House in Washington DC between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Sudan. Morocco later joined the circle of peace as well.

Israeli agriculture is at the forefront of global research and development. The combination of desert conditions that characterize the State of Israel and the most extensive research knowledge base in the world, creates fertile ground for cooperation with many countries and for establishing the name of Israel as a world leader in agriculture, the Agriculture Ministry pointed out in a statement.
