Networks and delegations
Zurich is networked in a wide variety of ways through comprehensive or specific, technical city networks as well as directly with other cities. The city is actively involved in international working groups, forums and meetings. In addition to a large number of technical networks, the City of Zurich also recognises its international responsibility through its political networks. Political alliances and a good network of national and international relationships are now valuable resources which are indispensable and must be carefully maintained. In addition, the City of Zurich regularly receives selected national and foreign technical delegations, which are interested in a very wide range of topics and fields of work relating to the City of Zurich’s administration. The Office for Foreign Affairs coordinates and handles inquiries from interdepartmental and political delegations and provides information on possible speakers and guided tours of the City of Zurich.
