Nepal and Israel have signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) Wednesday in Israel to establish Agricultural Centers of Excellence in Nepal and employing Nepali caregivers to Israel’s nursing areas.
The MoU was signed by Nepali Ambassador to Israel Ms. Dr. Anjan Shakya and Foreign Affairs Minister of Israel E. Gabi Ashkenazi on Wednesday.
According to the sources, the agro-centers will be established in all seven provinces of the country and Israeli labor market has been open to Nepali people.
Following the signing ceremony, Ambassador Shakya said that the dream comes true as her “efforts” was realized, Embassy sources added.
Now, Israelis can employ Nepali caregivers to the nursing and hospitality areas including hospitals, nursing homes, elderly homes and daycare centers, hotels, restaurant and other related fields.
With the signed of MoU, Nepali migrant workers would get equal facility and treatment in Israel as enjoyed by the Israeli citizens.
However, the Nepali Embassy in Tel Aviv also added that, the recruitment of workers would be started only after signing the ‘Implementation Protocol’ for each sector that will be signed soon as agreement has been reached after holding discussions at various levels.
This “Implementation Protocol” will be signed sooner by the Ambassador of Israel in Nepal and the concerned Nepal government official in capital.
After the signed documents come to final stage, nearly five hundred Nepalis laborers would be benefitted from the employment in Israel.
