20 December 2016, Tel Aviv, State of Israel – 540 Filipino student-trainees recently arrived in Israel to join the Agrostudies Program in Israel for 11 months of combined academic learning and practical work in farms all over Israel.
The students, who come from different agriculture universities and colleges in the Philippines, are participating in the program to study at specialized agricultural academic centers and experience the latest agro-based technology and techniques.
The Philippine Embassy to Israel, led by Ambassador Neal G. Imperial, welcomed the new student-trainees by conducting post-arrival orientation seminars in the three academic centers where the students are separately enrolled. The seminars aim to ensure that the students are informed about relevant aspects of their stay in Israel and to set their expectations during their 11-month program.
The seminars covered various topics such as an overview of Israel, its history, culture and society, state of bilateral relations of the Philippines and Israel, rights of student-trainees, Israel’s general security situation, the Embassy’s consular services and the profile of the Filipino Community in Israel.
The Embassy also invited the students to participate in the Embassy’s socio-cultural events such as the Community Christmas events, Flores de Mayo and Independence Day celebrations.
This year’s batch is the twelfth batch of Filipino student-trainees participating in the Agrostudies Program which is considered as an important pillar of Philippines-Israel development cooperation in the field of education and agriculture. END
