Agriculture Committee

The Agriculture Committee aims to provide members of the Israel-Asia Chamber of Commerce with a way to better perceive and optimize the agricultural developments of Israel and Asia with an emphasis on intercommunication and development for the future. The Agriculture Committee works closely with the Technology Committee due to the fact that agriculture is so heavily associated with periodically renewed technology.

Moreover, the Agriculture Committee can assist members by providing them with information relating to Israel and Asia’s agricultural movements. The Committee introduces clients to well-known companies and investors in both Israel and Asia while simultaneously highlighting institutions, organizations, and departments that would support and enhance trade between the Israeli and Asian markets.
