Jerusalem, February 1 (TASR correspondent) – Slovak Vice-premier for Investments and Informatisation Peter Pellegrini (Smer-SD) and Israeli Social Equality Minister Gila Gamliel signed a joint declaration to cooperate in the field of digitisation for the public sector in Jerusalem on Wednesday.
“With madam minister, we signed a declaration to cooperate in the sphere of modern and digital technologies. I’m very glad that this memorandum will allow us to boost the bilateral exchange of experience and know-how, but it will also help in the exchange of, for example, students and professionals in the field of modern technologies and cyber security,” said Pellegrini, adding that cyber security is a big issue nowadays.
“Israel is a leader in these fields and I strongly believe that the declaration will partly intensify expert cooperation between Israel and Slovakia,” said the Slovak vice-premier.
Pellegrini, along with the Slovak delegation of entrepreneurs, is on a working visit to Israel, during which the Slovak vice-premier delivered a speech at the global CyberTech 2017 conference in Tel Aviv, held talks with Israeli Minister of Science, Technology and Space Ofir Akunis, opened the Slovak honorary consulate in Haifa and took part in the Israeli-Slovak business forum.
