Swedish-Indonesian waste and water collaboration

This week, the cities of Borås in Sweden and Pontianak, Indonesia, with support from the Swedish International Centre for Local Democracy (ICLD), are scoping areas for collaboration in the area of waste and water management. This is an area where Pontianak’s ambitious Mayor Sutarmidji, who participated himself in a full-day seminar yesterday, March 5, has very ambitious plans and Borås has very useful competence and experience.

The visiting delegation included vice and deputy mayors Tom Andersson and Morgan Hjalmarsson, Tony Zetterfeldt of the company Biogas Systems and Hans Björk of Borås University, who on Monday signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Universitas Tanjung Pura in Pontianak with a view to boosting their already active research exchange.
