The Israeli Ambassador to Nigeria Shimon Ben-Shoshan said that bi-lateral relations between the two countries through knowledge sharing on agricultural technology and entrepreneurship would promote economic growth.

Ben-Shoshan said this in his address at the closing ceremony of the three-day Israel-Nigeria Agrinnovation seminar 2019, which held in Abuja.

The event, organised by the embassy, in collaboration with the Office of the Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo, has the theme: “No room for small dreams”, which began on December 10th and is expected to end on December 13th.

The two winners, Shiaye Mesharon-Dom, who represented Crept Cash organisation, and Temitayo Bamidele, Blum Global Fellow said the event impacted their lives.

Bamidele, a co-winner, said that the event witnessed keen contest among agricultural experts. He said he did not think he was going to win due to the serious nature of the contest, in which participants came up with great ideas.
