Close and long-standing relations also hold between ARO researchers and their counterparts in Europe. ARO has been active both in providing direct technical assistance to developing countries, and in providing such assistance in cooperation with various national, regional, international and non-governmental agencies. In this context, Israeli know-how has been exploited for the benefit of farming communities worldwide. ARO maintains particularly close relations with the various international, regional and national institutes involved in the promotion of good agricultural practice and in the increase of agricultural output, and in particular with the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).
