There is an atmosphere of tremendous understanding for mutual benefits at the people's level as well.

We can have a glance on Nepal-Israel relationship-which although, is a fast grown relation, especially in the manpower sector. Israel has been the most popular destination for most migrant Nepalese workers for better paying jobs. Over past few years, the State of Israel has greatly impacted Nepalese Employees and preferred very much because they are comparatively calm, patient, sincere, loyal and hardworking.

Israel is a financially booming country and most of the work in the care giving and agricultural field has made good employment destination. Nepalese people started seeking employment in Israel as a caregiver or agricultural personnel since many years.

2. Agriculture
Agriculture has dominated the economy of Nepal. We are not being able to focus on irrigation, the use of fertilizers and insecticides, and the introduction of new implements and new seeds of high-yield varieties. The lack of distribution of these inputs, as well as problems in obtaining supplies, however is inhibiting the progress of Nepal. Although some new agricultural technologies helped increase food production, there still is room for further growth. Nepal produces Rice, wheat, millet, barley, sugarcane, tobacco, potatoes, oilseed and medicinal herbs etc.

Whereas, Israel is the country making the desert bloom. Its success lies in the determination and ingenuity of farmers and scientists who have dedicated themselves to developing a flourishing agriculture in a country, which is more than half desert, thus demonstrating that the real value of land is a function of how it is utilized. Israel's flourishing agriculture is due to continuous, application-oriented research and development.
