Ramallah municipality seeks to build bridges of communication with the world, through which it may promote Palestine and the Palestinian cause internationally. The municipality provided strenuous efforts to intensify its activities on the local and international levels through signing several agreements and MOUs with international cities, which contributed not only to expanding the municipality’s network of international relations, but also to mapping all types of financial, moral and technical support for a number of important projects in the city.
Through building and developing relations with international institutions, the municipality participates in the different activities of such institutions including Lighting Urban Community International (LUCI Association), Arab Towns Organization, and Asian Mayors Forum. Additionally, there are several projects with all European cities that have twinings or cooperation and partnership agreements with the municipality that include exchanging expertise through visits of employees and training programs.
The municipality is also well aware of the importance of communicating with Ramallites in the Diaspora, as it establishes communication with them through participating in “Hathihe Ramallah” magazine that is issued by the American Federation of Ramallah, Palestine, in addition to the annual visit of the federation to the city and its continuous support to many of Ramallah’s active institutions.
