The parties discussed ways of cooperation between Dubai and Lyon in fields related to construction, historic buildings and landscaping, a statement said.

Lootah briefed the French delegation on tasks of the Municipality including town planning, city beautification, and overseeing building and construction activities in the Emirate.
