Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Deputy Ruler and Minister of Finance and Industry, opened in Dubai yesterday the Sister Cities Forum, which is being organised by the Dubai Municipality from May 15-17 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Present at the opening ceremony were Saeed Mohammed Al Kindi, Speaker of the Federal National Council, Dr Mohammed Khalfan bin Kharbash, Minister of State for Finance and Industry, Mayors of participant cities and a number of Dubai officials.



Addressing the opening session, Sheikh Hamdan said: "This forum symbolizes fraternity and correlation between our cities and peoples through which we look forward to further cooperation in various domains and to build bridges for interconnection between authorities and establishments in fraternized cities". He told the gathering that Dubai had become a meeting point of cultures from around the world and an economic hub linking the East and West by virtue of the UAE policy laid out by H.H. President Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and H.H. Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai. He expressed the hope that the Forum would realize its goals via the friendship and twinning agreements reached between the sister cities and direct meetings between the officials of these cities.
