Abstract

China and Israel are highly complementary in the field of agriculture. China has a large population engaged in agriculture while Israel has advanced agricultural technology which meets the needs of China’s agricultural development. Since the establishment of diplomatic relations thirty years ago, agricultural cooperation between the two countries has gradually expanded and now focuses on technological innovation. The Sino-Israel agricultural cooperation project in Shandong reflects the main characteristics of the cooperation– agricultural science and technology, with multi-level participants. Agricultural cooperation is mutually beneficial and a win-win situation for both countries. With intensified competition between major powers in science and technology, however, China and Israel need to pay closer attention to the influence of third party countries in their agricultural technology cooperation. In addition, the protection of intellectual property rights, and the adaptability of imported technologies by China are issues that China and Israel need to address in their future agricultural cooperation.
