Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro explored an Israeli innovation exhibition at the David Citadel Hotel in Jerusalem on Tuesday.

The two leaders were presented with various Israeli developments in the fields of agriculture and health, including a device for remote-control medical tests presented by TytoCare, a microgravity biological and chemical lab for producing – inter alia – stem cells and proteins presented by SpacePharma, and a device for measuring agricultural soil data, which is the sent to the cloud for remote monitoring and analysis, presented by CropX.

Following the exhibit, Netanyahu and Bolsonaro addressed the opening of a forum of Israeli and Brazilian businesspeople.

“Brazil has tremendous gifts and tremendous possibilities to join us. We can be, and want to be, your perfect partners," said Netanyahu. "We have no limitation on what we share with you, whether it's cybersecurity, in general security, in agriculture, in water, in IT.

"The sky is the limit, and we welcome you as our dearest friends."

Turning to the Brazilian president, he said: "My friend Jair, I speak to you, and the people of Israel speak to you, from the heart. We have a brotherhood. Our civilization began in this city thousands of years ago. Our common heritage began on these hills thousands of years ago. We cherish our past. We cherish our traditions. We are like an old tree with deep roots that keeps on sending branches to the sky.

"We have a wonderful opportunity to change the world and to change our future for the better.”
