On May 29, 2015, we celebrated 60 years of friendship between Myanmar and Israel.

Myanmar Prime Minister U Nu first visited Israel in 1955 and he was the first prime minister to make an official visit to the State of Israel.This left a remarkable impact and unforgettable memory for the people and the State of Israel.The tie between the two countries grew stronger and deeper since then.

To commemorate the 60th anniversary of Israel-Myanmar diplomatic relations, books and journals were donated by Israeli scientist Dr. Gideon Hulata for the Aquaculture Learning Centre. The books were sent to Myanmar by Mr. Haim Avoiz to the Learning Centre at the Office of the USAID Sustainable Seafood Industry Development Project Office located in the Myanmar Fisheries Federation building in Yangon. The Learning Centre was opened to public on June 1, 2015.
 
The Myanmar Fishery Federation is one of the organizations which has been recruiting agriculture trainees from Myanmar for on-job trainings in Israel in cooperation with the two agriculture learning centers – the Ramat Negev Desert Agro Research Centre and AICAT (Arava International Center for Agriculture Training). Every year, more than a hundred of students from MFF are learning in those centres.
