South Sudan seeks Israeli technical assistance in agriculture development and water conservation
South Sudan on Monday described ties with Israel as “strong and historical” and that it was for two states to embrace and promote economic and diplomatic cooperation, particularly technical assistance in agriculture development and water conservation mechanisms.

The government made the pronouncement in release revealing the visit of South Sudan’s minister of agriculture and forestry, Betty Achan Ogwaro, to Israel, to discuss on how the two countries can cooperate and exchange experience and skills, particularly as Israel has managed to farm dry areas of the Jewish state.

Deputy minister, Beda Machar Deng, explained that South Sudan wanted to learn from Israel’s irrigation systems. Only a tiny amount of South Sudan’s land is farmed despite the country having much fertile land.
