Amsterdam has decided to give up on its plans for a partnership between the city and Tel Aviv and Ramallah. The capital is still committed to working with both cities, but there will not be any formalized cooperation.
An Amsterdam delegation, including Mayor Eberhard van der Laan and alderperson Kajsa Ollongren, is currently on a visit to Tel Aviv and Ramallah. The purpose of this visit is to investigate the possibilities and desirability of cooperation between Amsterdam and the two cities and to answer the question on how Amsterdam can relate to these different communities at a municipal level.
Amsterdam Mayor Eberhard van der Laan may travel to Tel Aviv and Ramallah in September to explore how the cities can work together in the future.
