“I am delighted to pay my first official visit to India at the invitation of my friend, Prime Minister Modi, and together we will continue leading the way for our countries’ relations,” Bennett said, as quoted by Israel PMO.

The purpose of the visit is to advance and strengthen the strategic alliance between the countries, and to expand bilateral ties. In addition, the leaders will discuss the strengthening of cooperation in a variety of areas, including innovation, economy, research and development, agriculture and more,” the Press release by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) of Israel informed.

The Israeli PM will meet Prime Minister Modi and other senior government officials, as well as visit the Jewish community in the country.

The visit will mark the celebrations of the 30th anniversary of the establishment of full-fledged diplomatic relations between the two countries as India opened an embassy in Tel Aviv in 1992. For years, the bilateral engagement revolved around defence and agriculture, but, in recent years, the relations have seen rapid growth across a broad spectrum of areas.

“There are many things we can learn from the Indians, and this is what we strive to do. Together we will expand our cooperation to other areas, from innovation and technology, security and cyber, to agriculture and climate change,” Bennett added.
