Oshakati Signs Twinning Agreement With Chinese City

THE Oshakati town council has signed a five-year twinning agreement with the Chinese city of Nantong.

The agreement was signed between Oshakati town council officials and the People’s city association of China at the Nantong city offices recently.

Oshakati town council chief executive officer Werner Iita said the agreement was one of many strategic interventions to assist Oshakati to grow through benchmarking best practices from fast growing sister towns across the world.

Nantong people’s city association chairman Wang Deshong pledged to fully make use of the agreement by strengthening business relations with Oshakati.

The agreement seeks to enhance exchange and cooperation between the two councils on town planning, waste management, infrastructure, finance and human resource development. It will also include cooperation in areas of culture, education and tourism.

“Within the framework of quality and mutual benefit, both parties agreed to enhance the communication of entrepreneurs through expansion of trade exchanges and economic cooperation,” Iita said.

This is the first time the Oshakati Town Council has signed an agreement with a foreign city.
