01 August 2016
Governor Vladimir Miklushevsky met Israeli Ambassador to Russia Zvi Heifetz in Primorsky Territory.
Zvi Heifetz travelled to Primorsky Territory as part of a working visit to the regions of Siberia and the Russian Far East on the eve of the 25th anniversary of the restoration of Russian–Israeli diplomatic relations.
During the talks, the two sides discussed the prospects for joint work in various sectors of the economy, including manufacturing, agriculture and medicine. “You have made a great leap forward in this field, with the most complicated medical operations performed as a matter of routine today. Primorsky Territory has a modern Medical Centre at the Far Eastern Federal University and a Medical Institute, where your hi-tech solutions could be put to great use”, Vladimir Miklushevsky said.
The Israeli Ambassador expressed his readiness to work together. “We are interested in cooperation in all fields, including manufacturing, agriculture, and even shipbuilding. As for healthcare, I will make my next visit to Primorsky Territory in the company of a delegation of medical professionals from Israel. Our technological achievements are all that we have, and we are willing to share them”, the Ambassador said.
The Governor stressed that cooperation between Primorsky Territory and Israel is currently enjoying rapid growth. Previously, the first Eastern Economic Forum saw the signing of an agreement with an Israeli investor, concerning the establishment of a genetic and selection centre for embryo transplantation in the region.
