Celebrating 16 years of cooperation

Celebrating 16 years of cooperation

Buffalo City Metro and the City of Gavle in Sweden, are celebrating 16 years of a mutually beneficial twinning partnership.

The partnership was initiated in 2002 to primarily focus on strengthening local democracy, alleviate poverty, protect the environment, promote economic growth and social equality as well as practice good governance.

Through the twinning relations, over 40 projects have been implemented in Buffalo City. These projects include the development of:

The water management information systems

Land use management system

Community support centres

Transportation and traffic safety project

Good governance phase one and two (housing and public participation)

Public safety programme

Youth and special programmes

Electricity master plan multi-agency

Geographic information systems

Emergency services

Infrastructure asset management and

Citizen relationship management programme

 

Speaking at a seminar held at the East London International Convention Centre(ELICC) about the cooperation, Executive Mayor Xola Pakati said "Tangible results have been achieved over the last 16 years but the highest benefit has been the rich transfer of knowledge and experience.”

He further said that a wider approach to the partnership was adopted to open doors for more stakeholders in the City to benefit from the partnership, over 200 Buffalo City citizens benefited from the projects.

The partnership has offered substantial benefits for the City of Gavle as well, said Municipal Commissioner, Jan Myleus.

“Measurable progress has been made in various sectors through research opportunities and the information exchange component of the partnership.”

He added that “Municipal collaborations are rarely sustainable but it is an honour to be celebrating 16 years of a successful partnership with Buffalo City.”

The Swedish delegation arrived on Monday ,12 March 2018 for the celebrations. They have visited projects such as the Harambee youth project, which is one of the partnership initiatives, the BCMM youth development centre and the Masimanyane women's support centre. Their visit will close off with a farewell gala dinner on Thursday, 15 March, at the ELICC.
