The programme, which comes under the European Union’s urban cooperation programme, will ensure sustainable growth for Surat’s water system.
European Union’s Indian representative Piearro Rematti signed the agreement with Surat municipal commissioner M Thennarasan in presence of city mayor Asmita Shiroya and other elected representatives of Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC).
“Surat will get technical and logistics aid for period of two years under this agreement along with training facilities. The city will also benefit immensely in the field of water security from the Dutch city,” said an SMC official.
