On 2 March, Commissioner for Health and Food Safety Vytenis Andriukaitis will travel for a visit to Israel. On 3 March he will visit the World Holocaust Remembrance Centre in Tel Aviv, the Yad Vashem. The following day, he will meet with the Deputy Minister for Health, Yakov Litzman, to discuss collaboration in the field of health. He will also meet with Yakov Poleg, Deputy Director-General at the Foreign Trade Centre of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MOAG), to discuss EU-Israel collaboration and common issues in the agri-food sector. Following these meetings, he will hold a discussion with students in Ben Gurion University and will visit a number of medical and research centres engaged in e-health. Ahead of his visit to Israel, Commissioner Andriukaitis said, "The policies we form shape the future of young people so it is of utmost importance for them to be engaged. I look forward to discussing with students in Israel and to the opportunity to understand the priorities and aspirations of young people outside the EU. I hope that this visit will also take the EU-Israel relationship forward so we can continue to see tangible benefits from it, such as in common areas like health."
