Israel’s National Water Company Could Invest in Romanian Water Network Project

OOSKANEWS CORRESPONDENT — Israel’s National Water Company, Mekorot, has shown interest in investing in a project to modernize water networks in Romania’s Botoșani County. On March 13, a delegation from Israel held talks with the Botoșani County Council on the project. The network modernization could be carried out as a public-private partnership between the Israeli company and the Botoșani County government.

“The company is willing to become part of a public–private partnership that translates into water for Botoșani County,” said Gheorghe Sorescu, vice-president of the County Council.

For example, he said, the Israeli firm could participate in a project to bring water from the town of Darabani to the county seat, Botoșani.

“They have all the technology, experience and they are interested to become involved” in some projects, Sorescu said. “They will come with funds, with all the technology, will make investments and afterwards they obtain a lease term so that they can recover their investment and make a possible profit.”
