Earlier today, the leaders visited Haifa Cemetery to honour fallen Indian soldiers during World War I.
They then visited the beach where Prime Minister Narendra Modi was given a demonstration of Gal-Mobile, a mobile seawater desalination unit.
Later in Tel Aviv, the two Prime Ministers established an innovation bridge between start ups and innovators followed by a CEO forum meeting.
The CEOs of Indian and Israeli businesses signed MoUs worth over USD 5 bn on the sidelines of the visit.
The Forum also set up six Joint Committees covering startups, pharma and life sciences, homeland security, agriculture, energy and water sectors.
Prime Minister Modi’s visit to Israel was a first ever by any Indian Prime Minister. He is now headed to Germany to attend the G-20 Summit.
