In this way, in the case of urban management the more our contacts with the world municipalities the more experience and peace and friendship would be exchanged. The sessions this time seem more fruitful in terms of quality and quantity.”

The mayor of Ahvaz added: “In the past there were exchange of visits and communications among municipalities of the world but if such communications are based on a codified strategy with specific target and pre-determined plan they would be much more effective.
