Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to travel to Africa early Monday morning to participate in a ceremony 40 years to the Entebbe raid and begin a visit to 4 eastern African states.
Eli Groner, Director-General of the Prime Minister's Office, said that one of key goals of Africa trip is to strengthen economic ties.
Currently, only two-percent of Israel's exports go to Africa and this could increase dramatically.
Africa needs a lot of the know how that Israel has, specifically in the area of water conservation, agriculture, energy and cyber-security
"From commercial relations, great diplomatic relations can follow," Groner said.
