During British Prime Minister David Cameron’s visit to Israel last month, the Mekorot national water company signed a memorandum of understanding to foster collaboration with a British counterpart, the Israeli firm announced on Sunday.

Mekorot and engineering and infrastructural design firm Arup have agreed to jointly facilitate research and development in the fields of water and wastewater treatment around the world. The decision to cooperate occurred following a number of events organized by the UK-Israel Tech Hub, the companies said.“Water is a valuable resource worldwide,” Mekorot CEO Shlomo Ben Hamo said. “We welcome the beginning of cooperation between the two companies, which will enable the cultivation of new ideas in the global water sector.”



This collaboration joins dozens of other similar agreements that Mekorot has committed to internationally, with the intention of promoting water projects around the world to cope with the global water crisis, the company said.
