Dubai Municipality has announced that Eng. Hussain Nasser Lootah, acting director general of Dubai Municipality, yesterday received Gerard Collomb, mayor of Lyon, France at his office in Dubai.
The parties discussed ways of cooperation between Dubai and Lyon in fields related to construction, historic buildings and landscaping, a statement said.
