A new cooperation agreement
A three-year cooperation agreement was signed between the two cities in October 2010. The population of Strasbourg contains many families who originally came from Kayseri, which places this agreement in a special context.
Heritage and housing
One of the flagship actions of the partnership will be support for the renovation of the historic Germir district, to strike a good balance between the district's architectural heritage and its social housing requirements.
The construction of a tramline in Kayseri in 2009 was the first stage of a broader project for urban transport systems and their urban integration. Strasbourg has substantial experience in the area, which it will be using to help its partner city.
