Basel’s City Partnership with Miami Beach (USA) seals a partnership contract signed on November 28, 2011 as the prelude to the international art fair, Art Basel Miami Beach, in Florida.

A pre-contract already regulates the cooperation between the two cultural metropolises since June 15, 2011: A delegation from Miami Beach under the leadership of Mayor Matti Herrera Bower visited the Art 42 Basel and signed a so-called Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in the Basel Town Hall (Rathaus).

The focus of the Basel’s city partnership is on the interests of both sides in culture, tourism, economic development and education. The City of Miami Beach has a strong concentration of institutions, initiatives and companies in these areas. In addition, due to its position, it also creates an interesting bridge to Latin America.

The wishes and interests of stakeholders are welcomed, and will be integrated into the next MoU wherever possible. Do not hesitate to contact Josias Planta, Head of International Cooperations, tel. 061 267 40 86, josias.planta@bs.ch.
