Odessa accepted to the prestigious European organization

ODESSA ACCEPTED TO THE PRESTIGIOUS EUROPEAN ORGANIZATION
 
On October, 6, the executive committee session of “Eurocities” organization, which unites the largest European cities, took place in Brussels – the capital of the European Union. At the moment, it unites over 120 cities of 30 world countries, including all the EU countries.
To become a “Eurocity”, one has to have over 250000 population, high international and national importance, democratically chosen local government. The EU neighbor cities could be accepted as associative members (their quantity can’t exceed 10%).
At the session, Genoa city presented the candidature of its Ukrainian sister-city Odessa as a possible “Eurocities” associated member. The according application was signed by Odessa city mayor Eduard Gurvits in September.
After considering Odessa’s social-economic development level, its international image and its local government having been chosen democratically, it was decided to accept Odessa as the organization’s associated member. So, Odessa became the third (after St.-Petersburg and Kiev) CIS city to gain membership in elite European grand cities club.
This allows Odessa to take part in numerous cooperation and experience exchange programs financed by both the “Eurocities” and European Union structures. Besides, “Eurocities” membership is an important positive signal for potential investors and tourists.
