Israel Signed Water Agreements with Taiwan and Kenya
Israel signed Memoranda of Understanding agreements with Taiwan and Kenya, on the sidelines of the WATEC 2011 conference, held in November 2011 in Tel Aviv. The agreements will increase water-technology cooperation between Israel and both countries.
The Memoranda of Understanding agreement with Taiwan focuses on the fields of water technologies and small and medium businesses, through exchange of experts and scholars, exchange of technologies and data, and conduct of joint seminars. The water agreement encompasses the fields of resource management, water purification, wastewater treatment, recycling and reuse, and irrigation.
Under the Agreement with Kenya, Israel would assist the East African country in the areas of water-management technology, drip irrigation and wastewater treatment. Overall, Israeli water technology companies transactions are estimated to exceed 2 $ billion in 2011.
