Arutz Sheva reports: MK Avraham Neguise (Likud), chairman of the Aliyah Committee and founder of the Lobby for Relations Between Israel and African Countries, welcomed a delegation of prominent women representing 10 sub-Saharan African nations to the Knesset on Monday.

The delegation, which included 27 government officials, representatives of NGOs, political leaders, journalists and academics, met with Neguise to discuss the future of cooperation between Israel and their home countries.

”I believe that the meeting between Israeli technology and the fertile African soil can effect change in Africa and strengthen the ties between Israelis and Africans,” Neguise told the delegation.

Neguise noted Israeli technological advances in irrigation, desalination, tourism, medicine, education and solar energy.

“If we develop cooperation in these fields, both Israelis and Africans will benefit.”
