India and Bangladeshfor live scores and updates Israel and India signed several agreements on cooperation in the fields of technology water and agriculture Wednesday the second day of a landmark visit by the Indian prime minister to the Jewish state The cooperation marks a "marriage made in heaven" said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaking alongside his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi The agreements are the centerpiece of Modi’s three-day visit which began Tuesday to celebrate the 25 years of diplomatic relations and bring them even closer The two leaders also said they discussed counterterrorism and cybersecurity cooperation between the two states In the months leading up to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s historic visit to Israel India signed two arms deals spending $26 billion on Israeli missile defense systems Since Modi arrived on Tuesday military ties — for decades the secretive bedrock of India-Israel relations — have taken a back seat The governments have instead spent time discussing companies that sell medical devices hi-tech and water systems Rather than making the visit the first by a sitting Indian prime minister all about the value of deals signed Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Modi appeared intent on playing up shared culture and values in the hope this will give commercial ties deeper roots India’s PM Modi with Netanyahu in Israel/ Pic courtesy: PIB "Our goal is to build a relationship that reflects our shared priorities and draws on enduring bonds between our peoples" Modi said at the joint press conference During the Cold War India didn’t have open relations with Israel leaning heavily in favor of the Palestinians But over the past quarter century the countries have developed close ties in high-tech and defense Apart from meetings with Netanyahu Modi will hold talks with tech companies and the local community of Indian Jews He also said Wednesday he would pay respects to Indian soldiers buried in Haifa who died fighting in the British Army during World War I The packed schedule also included a visit Tuesday to Israel’s Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial but no meetings with Palestinian officials have been planned Modi also met Wednesday with Moshe Holtzberg a boy whose parents were killed in a 2008 massacre in Mumbai carried out by Muslim militants Holtzberg’s parents were emissaries of the Chabad movement living in Mumbai at the time Rabbi Yisroel Kozlovsky co-director of the Mumbai Chabad said he was glad Modi "recognized the sacrifice" of Holtzberg’s parents describing them as an "exceptional couple" that worked to establish Chabad-Lubavitch in Mumbai Under Arab pressure India kept its distance from Israel for decades but is now seeing advantages in a complementary relationship with Israel There is interest on both sides in building a broad economic base rather than merely a contractual exchange based around defense The timing reflects a diplomatic shift toward Israel being more accepted in the region Modi who is acutely conscious of the need to adopt innovation and new technology to update India’s infrastructure has always had a personal affinity for Israel and came to learn more about the country before he became premier "India and Israel are walking hand in hand into the future as partners" Modi and Netanyahu wrote in a joint editorial this week "From start-ups to space communications to cybernetics Israel’s technological capabilities are merging with India’s" The two men are spending 48 hours together with Modi accompanied by Indian business leaders getting a political and business tour that covers Israeli history culture and innovation as well as the signing of economic agreements Looking to reorient Israel’s economy toward Asia Netanyahu hopes more deals will follow setting a goal of increasing exports to India by 25 percent in the next four years But it may take a while before the Modi-Netanyahu relationship sparks a serious expansion in investment and trade both of which remain relatively negligible In many respects export-dependent Israel and India which is focused on supplying its huge population are complementary Israel is a global leader in water and food systems two critical fields India needs to upgrade India wants to strengthen its manufacturing base and is looking to do so

former investment banker from Mumbai who is director of corporate development for OurCrowd after moving to Israel last year "Israelis on the other hand are quite direct and lack patience in their business approach" he told Reuters Israel’s ambassador to India Daniel Carmon said it is becoming easier to do business between the two countries even if there may remain some differences in practice
