More than 600 delegates from cities around the world are expected to meet at Dubai's `Sister City Forum' from May 15 to 18 later this year, a top municipal official said on Monday at the seventh preparatory meeting of the event's Supreme Organising Committee. The forum will be held under the patronage of Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, UAE Minister of Finance and Industry, and Chairman of Dubai Municipality.

Mattar Al Tayer, Assistant Director-General of Dubai Municipality for Roads and General Projects, said: "The forum will seek to strengthen co-operation with the cities with which we have twinning protocol and co-operation and friendship pacts. They include Istanbul (Turkey), Osaka (Japan), Beirut (Lebanon Guangzhu and Shanghai (China), Geneva (Switzerland), Gold Coast (Australia), Casablanca (Morocco), Damascus (Syria) and Detroit (United States) and Jerusalem (Palestine)".

He said co-operation would bolster interaction with these cities in the economic, commercial, political and technical fields. During the event, each city will showcase its experience on best practices, while cultural shows will also be staged by folk troupes from participating cities. Mr Al Tayer called on all organising committee members to implement plans in accordance with the time schedule endorsed, so that preparations can be completed in time for the big event.

The first twinning protocol between Dubai and cities around the world was with Casablanca in 1994, followed with a protocol with Gold Coast in 1997, Detroit in 1998, Shanghai in 2000, besides co-operation protocol with Guangzhu, Damascus, Geneva, Beirut and Osaka and a co-operation pact with Jerusalem (Palestine).
