Egyptians Graduate From
Israeli Agricultural Course
As part of the training program of the Israel Foreign Ministry's Center for International Cooperation (MASHAV),
55 Egyptian university graduates, including two women, participated in a three-week course on "Irrigation,
Vegetables and Marketing" held at the CINADCO training center. Some of the students have already participated
in MASHAV courses in the past.
The course was one of many conducted in close cooperation between Israel (MASHAV), Denmark (through
DANINA, the Danish International Cooperation Office), and Egypt at the Israel Ministry of Agriculture's Centre
for International Agricultural Development Cooperation (CINADCO). Since the beginning of the trilateral
project (1993), over 2,000 Egyptians have taken part in training courses in Israel. In addition, some 50
on-the-spot training courses have been held in Egypt, for graduates of courses in Israel.
The Israel Foreign Ministry accords great importance to the Egyptian component of MASHAV's activity. The
joint projects enhance not only professional expertise, but also serve to foster closer relations and cooperation
between the Egyptian and Israeli people.
The graduation ceremony will be held on Wednesday, February 25, 1998, at the CINADCO center, at which
students will present their projects.
