Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is on his way to Italy, where he is scheduled to meet with Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and also to visit Expo 2015 in Milan.
The expo is the venue for the agricultural and food industry in Europe.
A long list of world leaders have already made their way to the trade show, whose them is ‘Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life.” Included among the honored visitors thus far have been Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel as well as the presidents of France, Russia, Austria, Ireland, Mexico and Colombia.
Netanyahu will first visit the pavilion presented by the State of Israel, and then several others, including those representing Italy, the United States and China.
The Israeli pavilion introduces the world to technological developments and innovative systems that Israel uses on a daily basis. The pavilion itself was built with advanced tools based on ‘green technology,’ including energy-saving devices and special water and air equipment.
The pavilion also displays the unique character of the State of Israel, albeit with its special emphasis on advanced agriculture and technology. It presents Israel’s historical and cultural values, and its agricultural heritage from Biblical times to the present.
The entire pavilion is environment-friendly and recyclable without impact on the environment. The vertical Fields of Tomorrow is a demonstration of Israel’s abilities in various areas including the cultivation of rocky land, growth of vegetables in the desert, new methods of irrigation and improvement of seed quality.
