Moscow and Berlin municipal heads sign agreement on cooperation

The Russian and German capitals - Moscow and Berlin - intend to develop mutually profitable partnership in the social and economic spheres. The corresponding statement was signed on Monday by Moscow mayor Yury Luzhkov and Berlin governing mayor Klaus Wowereit.

In particular, the document says that the two capitals have come to terms about holding Days of Moscow in Berlin in 2003 and Days of Berlin in Moscow in 2004.

Besides, the two cities intend to create favourable conditions for developing business activities and intensifying business contacts, according to the document. To achieve this, they plan to arrange annual meetings of such structures as the Unions of entrepreneurs, Trade and Industry chambers and handicraft chambers of Moscow and Berlin.

A special clause of the statement is devoted to exchange of experience in developing municipal governing.

Moscow and Berlin also plan to develop cooperation in the economic sphere and to intensify contacts in such traditional spheres of cooperation as labour market, women and youth policy, migration policy, security of citizens and protection of the environment.
