posted on 18/05/2004: 3416 views



The 3-day Dubai Sister Cities Forum has succeeded in achieving its objectives bringing together a multitude of cities and cultures and facilitating a constructive dialogue among them for the benefit of their people, said Qassim Sultan, Director General of Dubai Municipality.



He was talking to reporters following a meeting with Yutaka Takasugi, Vice Governor of Osaka, Japan, on the sidelines of the forum, which concluded today at the Dubai International Convention Centre. During the talks, the Japanese official expressed his desire for boosting cooperation with Dubai.



He noted that talks were in progress with various other cities of the world for more twinning and cooperation protocols. For example, a representative from the German city of Frankfurt, Sibylle Herforth, Executive Director of the Frankfurt Economic Development GMBH, participated in the forum. She represented President of the Department, Dr. Hartmut Schwesinger, who during a recent visit to Dubai has expressed his desire in establishing cooperation with Dubai in the field of trade and tourism.



Sultan added that Dubai has established its importance through its participation in various international events for cities and local governments including the recently concluded United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) in Paris where Dubai was elected as a member of the Administrative Council of the organization. He hinted that the Dubai Sister Cities Forum will be a regular event, providing a permanent avenue for exchanging expertise and information among the sister cities of Dubai. (The Gulf News)
