Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to meet with African leaders in New York in September, as part of the annual United Nations General Assembly meeting.

Netanyahu visited Africa in July for a four-day trip that included meeting with the leaders of Kenya, Rwanda and Ethiopia.

The meetings scheduled for September will take place as part of a special exhibition organized by Israeli Ambassador to the U.N. Danny Danon. The event will showcase Israeli technological developments meant to benefit African countries in the fields of science, agriculture, and medicine.

“We continue to promote Israel-Africa relations and we want to present the beautiful aspects of Israel to the world,” Danon said.

The exhibition will feature 10 Israeli companies that will present their innovations to senior African officials, as well as to ambassadors from all over the world.

Among the innovations slated to be showcased are a portable greenhouse, polluted water detection technology, a device that can produce water from air, advanced solar technology used to generate power and pump water and advanced technology used to diagnose cancer.
