Wimborne May Twin With Omani Town

 Wimborne, Britain councilors are supporting a campaign for the town to be twinned with a town in Oman. The Dorset’s town council approved the proposal and hopes it will boost Wimbornes profile and increase tourism and business links between the two towns. Wimborne is currently twinned with two towns – Valognes, France and Ochsenfurt, Germany.  

A council official said “Culturally, we’re very similar so we’d like to extend the hand of friendship.”  He said there are benefits of business cooperation and tourism because “our residents can visit Oman, and hopefully they’ll do the same here.”    The twinning bid is expected to be complete by the end of the year and the council will now try to win the support of the towns 6,400 residents.   Oman is the oldest independent state in the Arab world with ties to Britain dating back to the 17th century.
