The Town of Richmond Hill has a new twin.
Mayor Dave Barrow, who is leading a trade mission to Israel this week, signed the twinning agreement with Miriam Fierberg-Ikar, mayor of the City of Netanya, Nov. 22.
It is the third city to be twinned with Richmond Hill. Similar partnerships exist with Lakeland, Florida and Shijiazhuang, China.
Barrow hopes the new partnership will facilitate the exchange of information and ideas related to culture, youth, heritage and sport, encourage exchange visits by the citizens of both communities, develop tourism initiatives and promote economic and business ties.
