India and Israel on 14 October 2015 signed two agreements to enhance bilateral cooperation. The agreements were inked after President Pranab Mukherjee, who was in Jerusalem on the final leg of his tri-nation tour to West Asia, held a meeting with his Israeli counterpart Reuven Rivlin.
The two agreements which were signed includes
• A cultural exchange programme for 2015-2018
• The amendment to the protocol on Double Taxation Avoidance Agreement
The pact on tax avoidance will help plug loopholes in tax evasion and ensure that the Indian or Israeli companies are taxed only where they have permanent establishments.

During this visit to Israel, President Mukherjee also addressed the Knesset (Israeli Parliament). He also visited to the Holocaust Museum.
