Tel Aviv (VNA) – A graduation ceremony has been recently held for over 150 Vietnamese and Nepalese students who attended the International Course for Agriculture from 2016-2017 at Sedrot Negev Agriculture Centre (SNAC) in northern Israel.

Speaking at the event on July 6,  said the course is exclusively designed for students from Asian countries, including Southeast Asia, and out of more than 150 graduates this year, about 50 come from Vietnam.

The centre looks forwards to more Vietnamese students enrolling its courses as they are very dynamic and creative, he noted, adding that a Vietnamese graduate plans to pursue a master degree in agriculture at Bengurion University.

Khuat Van Quyen from the Embassy of Vietnam in Israel urged the Vietnamese graduates to work harder to learn more from Israel’s high technology and advanced management in agriculture so that they can contribute to Vietnam’s agricultural development when returning home.

Besides SNAC, there are three more centres in Israel inviting Vietnamese students to enroll in their agricultural programmes – AICAT Arava, Ramat Negev, and Agrostudies.-VNA
