Mayor Greets Students from Halifax's New Sister City

Mike Savage, Mayor of Halifax Regional Municipality, received our BNUZ students at City Hall, where they were given the opportunity to discuss the many ways Halifax and Zhuhai are building bridges.

Mayor Savage, who recently visited BNUZ during a trip to Zhuhai to discuss economic partnerships and a Friendship Agreement, discussed how Halifax has become a destination in Canada for international students and immigrants. The city, he said, embodies the spirit of multiculturalism and openness to new people and ideas that defines Canada as a whole.

Students were given the opportunity to sit in council chambers, where they asked questions on issues ranging from urbanization and economic growth to study abroad programs and preserving urban greenspace.
