A graduation ceremony was held for the 1,100 students attending the course in the 2017-2018 academic year, including those from Cambodia, Kenya, Laos, Myanmar, Nepal, Timor Leste, Indonesia and Thailand.
First Secretary of the Vietnamese Embassy in Israel Khuat Van Quyen said after 10 months studying in Israel, Vietnamese students gained access to knowledge of the country’s advanced agriculture and will contribute to Vietnam’s agricultural development.
Le Thi My Trinh from the Ho Chi Minh City University of Agriculture and Forestry said students of this programme learnt about agricultural economy, finance, management, irrigation system and food security.
The program also offered opportunities for learners to improve their skills, both in agriculture and life skills, and helped them practice English, she added.
Currently, there are four centers participating in the enrolment of students in Vietnam, including AICATA, Ramat Negev, Sdot Negev and Agrostudies.
