Twinning towns

Promoting city twinning
Developing municipal partnership between towns, cities, counties, states. This is to create opportunities for the citizens of member cities to experience and explore other cultures through long-term municipal partnerships; create an atmosphere in which economic development and trade can be developed, implemented and strengthened; stimulate environments through which municipal partnerships can creatively learn, work and solve problems together. Town twinning develops cultural, social, economic and technical exchanges between local and regional authorities and other forms of international cooperation.
In San Valentino Torio, near Pompeii, Italy, women outnumber men two to one and the female population is urging their mayor to twin the town with a UK location to solve the problem.
