KATHMANDU: Nepal’s newly appointed Ambassador to Israel Prahlad Prasai has said his main mission as an envoy is promoting Nepal’s goods and tourism in Israel, along with strengthening bilateral cooperation and protecting the Nepali community there.
Talking to journalists today, Prasai said he was quite confident that Nepal’s agriculture products such as tea and coffee could sell well in Israel. He pointed that Nepal could learn lessons from the Israeli irrigation system, which is considered one of the best in the world.
Prasai, a joint secretary at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is flying to Israel to assume his assignment on Wednesday. He expressed hope that Nepal’s Tel Aviv-based mission could help establish air link between Nepal and Israel via an Indian city. Currently, some 8,000 Israeli tourists visit Nepal annually. Around 8,000 Nepali migrant workers are working in Israel.
Prasai said he will do his bit to help Nepalis, who want to head to Israel in search of work.Source: The Himalayan Times
