Salient points of PM Modi’s Press Statement during Visit of Prime Minister of Israel to India on 15 Jan, 2018

We have imparted our shared impatience to the implementation of our earlier decisions. The results are already visible on the ground.

Our discussions today were marked by convergence to accelerate our engagement and to scale up our partnership

We will strengthen the existing pillars of cooperation in areas that touch the
lives of our peoples. These are agriculture, science and technology and security.

We exchanged views on scaling up the Centers of Excellence that have been a
main-stay of agricultural cooperation

In defence, I have invited Israeli companies to take advantage of the liberalized FDI regime to make more in India with our companies.

We are venturing into less explored areas of cooperation such as oil & gas, cyber security, films and start-ups.

We are committed to facilitating the flow of people & ideas between our geographies. It requires policy facilitation, infrastructure & connectivity links & fostering constituencies of support beyond Government

In Prime Minister Netanyahu , I have a counter-part who is equally committed to taking the India-Israel relationship to soaring new heights

I am delighted to have the chance to be with PM @netanyahu in my home state, Gujarat, day after.

There we will have another opportunity to see the fulfillment of the promise, which our mutual cooperation holds in diverse areas such as agriculture, technology, and innovation
