Just returned from Puerto Rico where I have been discussing with the authorities a number of topics having to do with ways to strengthen the excellent relations between Israel and Puerto Rico. We are on the verge of signing a cooperation agreement that will further enhance our ties. While in Puerto Rico, I met the Secretary of State, Mr. Kenneth McClintock, with whom I discussed the possibility of bringing some interesting and ground-breaking “green” Israeli technologies to the Island. Israel, a world leader in solar energy, water technologies and more, can and should collaborate with Puerto Rico in these areas and others.
