Aix-Marseille-Provence Metropolis and Miami-Dade County united through Sister City agreement [fr]
Led by Jean-Claude Gaudin, Mayor of Marseille and President of the Aix-Marseille-Provence Metropolis, and Martine Vassal, President of the Departmental Council of Bouches-du-Rhône, a large delegation visited Miami to promote the destination of Marseille and the Bouches-du-Rhône department by showcasing their sectors of excellence: health, the cruise industry, tourism, lifestyle, the digital sector and the aviation industry.
For five days, 117 institutional representatives and entrepreneurs from Marseille and Provence met with elected representatives and local entrepreneurs in South Florida.
This visit, which allowed French companies from the Aix-Marseille-Provence metropolis to meet local officials and entrepreneurs, resulted in the joining of the Aix-Marseille-Provence metropolis and the county of Miami-Dade.
This agreement, which is the first cooperation agreement between Marseille and an American city, aims to build a partnership based on economic and touristic programs promoting the two areas.
