Agriculture Minister Shalom Simhon signed an agreement with his Vietnamese counterpart on Tuesday for the two countries to join forces in the water-technology and milk industries. Israeli technology ranks among world-leaders in both sectors and under the new agreement, Vietnam will now be able to benefit from the Israelis' knowledge and experience in maximizing the agricultural potential of a small country. Vietnam exports approximately $7 billion worth of agricultural products a year, but still lags behind other Far Eastern countries in the milk and water-tech sectors.
