Israel is hopeful of setting up a centre of excellence in Goa to aid the state vis a vis technological issues related to agriculture, Israel's consul general in Mumbai Davik Akov said here Saturday.

"We have about 20 centres of excellence of Israeli technology all over India. We hope to have one in Goa. We are starting to work on the prospects of that," Akov told IANS on the sidelines of the inauguration of an Israeli film festival here.

"We believe that Israeli technology can assist certain areas of interest to Goa, like agriculture and maybe once we look in-depth, we can start looking at other areas of co-operation. We are looking forward to other areas of co-operation between Israel and Goa," he said.
