Hanoi (VNA) – The Embassy of Israel in Vietnam launched a solar-powered drip irrigation system at Bac Co Park in downtown Hanoi as a gift to the capital city in an event on April 18.

Co-hosted by the Israeli Embassy, the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union (HCYU)’s Central Committee and the Hoan Kiem District Peole’s Committee, the event aimed to mark the Earth Day 2021 (April 22).

Invented by Israel, the drip irrigation system helps increase crop yield and quality while using less water per unit of land and reduce environmental pollution.

Speaking at the event, Israeli Ambassador to Vietnam Nadav Eshcar said the present demonstrates Israel’s commitment to supporting Hanoi and Vietnam at large in environment protection and creation of a green and clean living space.

Like other activities Israel is doing globally to respond to the Earth Day 2021, this aims to remind each person of valuable resources on the earth and encourage Vietnamese young people to contribute more to building a clean and green environment for their own future.

Welcoming the act of the Israeli Embassy, Secretary of the HCYU Central Committee Ngo Van Cuong said the event helps raise awareness of environment protection and climate change response among local residents, particularly young people./.
