At the working luncheon, Hao Peng listened to the briefing made by the senior executives on the innovative technologies of Israeli sci-tech enterprises like Agrint.
After extending his welcome to Hao and his delegation, Ariel exchanged ideas with Hao on strengthening cooperation between the two countries on innovative agricultural projects.
Ariel said he hoped that Chinese enterprises, and in particular Chinese central SOEs, will boost their cooperation with Israeli enterprises, unleash the potential for mutual benefit based on complementary advantages, and join hands to realize common development.
Hao appreciated Israeli companies' innovative technological capacity and the achievements they had made.
Israel's outstanding innovation in high-tech products and advanced business models in various fields have promoted rapid development of the country’s economy and society, and provide good references for Chinese central SOEs' transformation and upgrading, Hao noted.
He briefly introduced SASAC and Chinese central SOEs, adding that he hoped Chinese and Israeli enterprises will enhance communication and promote innovation, entrepreneurship and partnership through pragmatic cooperation, steadily promote the major projects of each other, and expand the depth and width of cooperation under the Belt and Road Initiative.
