Bim and Israel still good friends

Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Senator Maxine Mcclean, has praised the long-standing relationship with Israel and has promised to explore other areas of mutual cooperation.

She gave this undertaking recently during a courtesy call from Israel’s Ambassador to Barbados and other Caribbean states, Amiram Magid, at the ministry’s Culloden Road, St. Michael headquarters.

McClean said: “We have had as a country and between our people, long-standing relations and good historic ties. I also recognise that in the past we have had a number of areas where technical cooperation was provided by Israel and I would want to see that continue.”

In this regard, the minister mentioned the need to resuscitate agriculture to include the youth and the application of new technologies as avenues to increase productivity and counteract food security.

The Israeli ambassador agreed and pledged to lend his country’s expertise in the development of programmes to tackle societal issues with a security focus such as youth-at-risk and agriculture as a business.
