India and Palestine sign protocols to extend MoU’s on Developmental Projects

As part of India’s developmental partnership with Palestine, protocols to extend previously signed agreements for projects funded by the Government of India were signed today. On behalf of the Government of India, Representative of India to State of Palestine Shri Sunil Kumar signed the agreements with Minister of Education Dr. Marwan Awartani, Minister of Health Dr. Mai Kaileh, and General Supervisor of Palestinian Official Media Minister Ahmad Assaf.

During the signing ceremony held at the Office of the Prime Minister in Ramallah, Prime Minister of Palestine H.E. Dr. Mohammad Shtayyeh expressed gratitude and appreciation for the Government of India’s constant support, developmental partnership with Palestine and underlined that India is a great and friendly nation that has always stood beside and continues to support to Palestine.

It is worth noting that the historic visit of Hon’ble Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi to Palestine in February, 2018, witnessed the announcement of project assistance worth $41.35 million to build two schools, an additional floor at the Jawaharlal Nehru School in Abu Deis, a super-specialty hospital in Bethlehem, women empowerment center, and the procurement of equipment for the national printing press.

The extension of the agreements signed includes the construction of two schools in Muthalath Al-Shuhada - Governorate of Jenin, Tamoun -Governorate of Tubas, construction of the India Super-Speciality Hospital in Governorate of Bethlehem and equipping of the National Printing Press in Surda, Governorate of Ramallah and Al-Bireh. India’s partnership with Palestine in capacity building efforts and developmental projects is well-established and covers vital sectors, including health, education, information technology, women empowerment, in addition to a wide range of specialized training courses and annual scholarships.
