Water, Gas Ties with Montenegro Raised


Economics Minister Vladimir Kavarić of Montenegro told Infrastructures Minister Uzi Landau, Thursday, that his country is interested in exporting water to Israel in the framework of tightening ties between the two countries. On the sidelines of the Gateway to Montenegro business gathering at a Tel Aviv hotel, Dr. Landau responded by saying that the Water Authority was finishing a feasibility study on the matter and that there was room for further discussion.

The two ministers discussed a number of fields with potential, noting that both countries have fledgling natural gas industries. Kavarić noted that he has met with Israeli companies and other bodies in the sector. He also expressed an interest in sending a delegation to Israel to learn energy efficiency techniques.
