Bac Ninh city and the Czech Republic’s Cheb city signed a cooperation pact in northern Bac Ninh province on November 2.

The two cities first discussed their bilateral agreement in August 2014 before inking a Memorandum of Understanding three months later in Cheb, which is located in the Karlovy Vary region.

Under their newly formed twinning relations, they will support joint activities between the peoples in culture, art, education and sports, among others.

Information exchanges and promotion publications will be a highlight, helping them understand each others’ history and current developments.

They agreed to priority delegation exchanges to build future collaborative programmes with focuses on trade, services, construction, environment, education and culture.
