Israel and China executed an agreement in a volume of more than NIS 1 billion for the export of Israeli water technologies to China.

On Wednesday, February 29, in Beijing, Minister of Finance Dr. Yuval Steinetz and the Chinese Finance Minister Xie Xuren, signed a financial protocol in a volume of more than NIS 1 billion (US $ 300 million) for the export to China of Israeli water technologies for agricultural use.

The financial protocol is an agreement between the Governments of Israel and of China for setting up a special line of credit for financing trade and Israeli investment in China. The protocol enables the insurance of long-term loans granted to export transactions from Israel on conditions that give the Israeli exporter an edge over his competitors worldwide.

Pursuant to the financial protocol, the Chinese Ministry of Finance will purchase Israeli technologies for the farming communities in the selected provinces. The protocol agreement will enable execution of projects in a volume of more than NIS 1 billion (300 million dollars), in which the Israeli component will constitute at least 50% of the project's value. Integration of the financial protocol into the Chinese five-year plan indicates acknowledgement of Israeli technological capabilities and the importance of the economic and political relations between the countries.
