Namibia’s Capital City, Windhoek, and China’s Suzhou City, recently inked an agreement to consolidate and develop friendly cooperation between the two cities.
The five-year agreement aimed at enhancing mutual understanding and friendship between the two was signed by the City of Windhoek mayor, Muezee Kazapua and Li Yaping, mayor of Suzhou on behalf of the two respective cities in Suzhou on Monday.
The City of Windhoek’s Corporate Communication Officer, Lydia Amutenya, Wednesday in a statement said the agreement is set to cover exchanges and cooperation between the two cities in the fields of economy, trade, science and technology, culture, education, sports, health, and personnel.
Kazapua at the event said the two cities have agreed to cooperate on important areas, which are key drivers in municipal service delivery and local economic development.
Furthermore, he urged the two to draw up a working program that will ensure the implementation of specific projects under the agreed areas of cooperation.
The agreement was a result of friendly consultations between the two cities that culminated in a Letter of Intent which was signed by the two cities in Windhoek in August 2018, Kazapua said. Enditem
