Joburg Mayor, Parks Tau, to attend Metropolis meeting in Argentina

The City of Johannesburg is a metropolis.  Our Executive Mayor. Parks Tau, leaves for Argentina today, May 17, to attend the Metropolis 2015 Annual Meeting.  He is C0-President of the Metropolis, and organisation of nearly 140 member cities across the world, each having a population of over 1 million people.

The press release points out that “Mayor Tau’s role in the global body is to oversee a portfolio on social inclusion and access to basic services that include housing, education, healthcare, social welfare, transport, as well as electricity, water, sanitation, refuse and waste removal.”

I trust that he will come back with new enthusiasm and best praxis ideas.  Joburg surely needs them if we want to live up to the motto “Joburg – a world class African city”.
