Boryspil municipality will twin with the city of Vantaa

The Boryspil City Council approved the decision to sign a cooperation agreement with the Finnish city of Vantaa.

This was announced by Volodymyr Borysenko, Mayor of Boryspil.

According to him, the cooperation was initiated by the municipality of Vantaa, and negotiations on twinning between the cities have been ongoing for more than six months.

“It’s an interesting industrial city. It has the largest airport in Finland, and the entire industry revolves around the airport. We will be able to exchange experience,” said the mayor.

The parties are to exchange visits shortly.

Today, the Boryspil municipality has three official sister cities, Kraśnik (Poland), Callao (Peru) and Hopkins (US).

Decentralization reminds that municipalities of Ukraine can use the International Municipal Partnership Guidelines to build communication with foreign municipalities and enter into twinning agreements. These Guidelines offer algorithms and practical advice on establishing a partnership, cases of successful partnerships, practical advice on customs clearance and accounting of various types of assistance that partners can exchange, information on how to choose partners, how to organise the work of competent professionals or division, as well as information on financing, bookkeeping and reporting and a lot of other useful information.

Based on these Guidelines, the Ministry for Development of Communities and Territories of Ukraine developed the Partnership for Recovery and Development section of the Decentralization national portal, with the support of DECIDE (Decentralisation for Improved Democratic Education), a Swiss-Ukrainian project, and the U-LEAD with Europe Programme.

These Guidelines are based on the methodology of the Council of Europe, City to City Cooperation, and developed by the Council of Europe as part of the Programme “Decentralisation and Public Administration Reform in Ukraine” at the request of the Ministry for Development of Communities and Territories of Ukraine.
