Hebron Mayor Khaled Osaily met on the 20th of December at his office  with a delegation from the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale  Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) with a view to reviewing and discussing projects  implemented by the Municipality in cooperation with GIZ, mainly the  project for the development of the Customer Services Center, as well as  discussing  the possibility of organizing an international conference on  e-municipalities in Palestine. The German delegation comprised Mr.  Jürgen Wilhelm, GIZ Managing Director, Mr. Rudolf Rogg, GIZ Country  Director, as well as several GIZ staff.

At the beginning of his  speech, Osaily valued the role played by GIZ in supporting development  projects in Hebron as well as efforts made recently to enhance local  government projects, help improve the infrastructure and support  Palestinians in general. Osaily presented his vision on how to enhance  services and improve their quality, then spoke about the Strategic Plan  endorsed by the Municipal Council as well as projects executed during  the past few years especially in the field of youths and sports. “We are  working to promote youths and sports by providing the basis for  developing skills and by encouraging young people to become more  creative and outstanding thanks to a set of vital projects including Al  Hussein Stadium, the Indoors Sports Hall, Tarek Ibn Ziyad Community  Center and the Korean-Palestinian Cultural Center”, he added.

Osaily  called on the GIZ to provide additional support to projects in the city  and to continue efforts in support of Palestinians. He lauded efforts  made by GIZ and other German institutions working in Palestine. He then  underlined efforts made by his Municipality to turn into an  e-municipality by next year. “80% of the necessary work and  infrastructure has been completed and we see many indicators of success  at the Customer Services Center thanks to its partnership with all key  sections in Hebron Municipality”, he said.

Osaily then suggested  organizing an international conference on e-municipalities in Hebron  with a view to exchanging experiences and providing Palestinian  municipalities with the latest developments in this field. “This would  help Hebron Municipality take another step towards providing all its  services electronically”, he added.

The delegation then toured  Hebron Municipality and was briefed by the heads of the GIS Section and  the Customer Services Center about their services. Jürgen Wilhelm  expressed his admiration of the technical, scientific and administrative  developments at the Municipality’s sections, underlining their role in  sharing their experience with other Municipalities. “It is very  important to benefit from the experience of Hebron Municipality in a  number of fields and to share this experience with other Palestinian  municipalities and institutions in order to enhance services and built  complementarity among Palestinian institutions”, he said.
