Twinning agreement brings a taste of Spain to Dubai

posted on 30/08/2006: 9907 views

Dubai is planning to make firm links with the Mediterranean next month when it becomes a sister city to Spain's largest port city Barcelona. The twinning agreement will pave the way for stronger relations between the two popular tourist destinations.

Barcelona, which is the capital of the Catalonia region, is famous for its historic streets such as La Ramblas, Gaudi's buildings and the Barcelona Football Club. Hussein Nasser Lootah, acting Director-General of Dubai Municipality met with the Spanish Ambassador to the UAE, Manuel Beniero, this week to discuss the plans.

Lootah praised the relations between Dubai, Barcelona and other Spanish cities and said this would strengthen them. A Dubai Municipality spokesman said: "Dubai has already signed twinning and operations agreements with 13 other cities across the world. The idea behind the move is that in the future Barcelona and Dubai will exchange expertise, indulge in technical co-operation and undertake technical exchange programmes.” The move means there will be official visits made between officials of both cities, business delegations, civic trips and the sharing of the two cultures.” (Emirates Today)
