Vaughan Mayor Signs Agreement with Province of MilanWith an objective to establish close relationships with cities that have similar goals, Vaughan Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua signed a memorandum of understanding with Guido Podestà, president of the Province of Milan, Italy. Effective in three years, the memorandum will promote a mutually beneficial exchange of information, sport and culture. The signing ceremony was held in the capital of Lombardy, marking the beginning of a business relationship between the Province of Milan and the City of Vaughan.

Mayor Bevilacqua looks at Milan as “the gateway for innovation, entrepreneurial activity and business into Italy and the European Union.” Because of this positive outlook, he believes the bilateral agreement will benefit Vaughan greatly, giving the city the ability to pursue economic opportunities.

The City of Vaughan is one of the fastest growing cities in Canada, with a population of 300,000. As the hub of the Italian economy, the Province of Milan holds most of the country’s international banks and the principal stock exchange.
