Extending Cheltenham's international reach

Local representatives are invited to help shape Cheltenham's international future at a special event on Tuesday 22 April 2008, from 6-8pm at the town hall.

With more opportunities than ever before to gain benefits from international links, the event looks at how Cheltenham can further its international reach and achieve economic and social development, whether through business, arts, culture, education, youth, environment and others.

Andrew North, chief executive of Cheltenham Borough Council, said: "We are extremely fortunate that in Cheltenham we have our established links with other nations. We must build on those and make sure that we maximise the positive opportunities our twinning and friendship links present."

Delegates will be able to give their views on topics including: what Cheltenham can offer to those overseas; what Cheltenham people want, need and can gain from existing and future partnering; and what action can be taken to capitalise our opportunity over the next 10 years.

The event also aims to identify how to help twinning in Cheltenham become self-sufficient in determining and managing its future.
