NDO/VNA—Vietnam and Israel should promote cooperation in technology transfers and research and development, said President Tran Dai Quang at a reception for Chairman of Israel’s IMI Systems, Ltd. Yitzhak Aharonovitch in Hanoi on February 21.
President Quang expressed his delight at the positive development of Vietnam-Israel cooperation, particularly in economics, trade, science, technology, education and agriculture.
Bilateral collaboration has been growing continuously since his visit to the country in 2014 as the Minister of Public Security, particularly in security and defence, including cooperation on technology transfers.
Israel has become a major partner to Vietnam in this field, the President said, stressing the important role of the two nations’ security technology companies and groups.
The State leader spoke highly of Aharonovitch’s contributions to expanding Vietnam-Israel cooperation when he was Minister of Public Security.
He expressed his hope that Aharonovitch will continue contributing to further promoting the bilateral relationship, particularly in training high-quality human resources in technology.
For his part, the Israeli guest informed his host of a number of projects his group has invested in in Vietnam since 1999.
He expressed his hope that the two sides will enhance cooperation efficiency and high technology transfers.
