Mayor Richard M. Daley and Chicago Sister Cities convened municipal leaders from throughout the United States, Canada and the Arab world for the first-ever U.S. – Arab Cities Forum.

The three-day conference provided a unique opportunity for mayors and local leaders to engage in a high-level dialogue about the challenges municipalities face and strategies to ensure cities remain competitive in a global society. Building on the strong sister city ties Chicago has forged with Amman, Jordan and Casablanca, Morocco, Mayor Daley co-hosted the event with Mayor Omar Maani of Amman and Mayor Mohamed Sajid of Casablanca. The Forum featured sessions focused on education and youth, economic development and improved quality of life, and environment and sustainability.
