Memorandum of Understanding
The city partnership of Basel and Shanghai is based on a partnership contract that was signed in Shanghai on the 19th November 2007. For a period of three years in each case, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) defines the more specific goals of the cooperation, which have been agreed in advance. The agreed goals will thereby be implemented by both partners as far as possible, although the activities that are actually carried out are not exclusively limited to the contents of the MoU.
Up to now, one MoU has been signed for the years 2008 - 2010 and one for the years 2011 – 2013, and are divided into the following areas: the maintenance of official relationships and the promotion and realisation of cooperation projects in the areas of the economy, life sciences, health care, education, research, urban planning and development, location marketing, media work, tourism and culture.
The wishes and interests of stakeholders are welcomed, and will be integrated into the next MoU wherever possible. Do not hesitate to contact Florian Eggli, Head Marketing-Cooperations, Tel. 061 267 40 86, email@example.com.
