A recent visit to South Africa proved to be a major step forward for a relationship with The County.
Prince Edward County officials and council members visited to discuss a partnership with the Kouga Local Municipality.
During the three year partnership, both municipalities will work on local economic development, youth employment, climate change and more.
The program is run through the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and Global Affairs Canada.
Councillor Steve Ferguson says despite being 15,000 kilometres apart, the two communities share a lot of similarities.
Both areas see large spikes in tourism during certain times of the year.
Kouga is in Eastern Cape Province in South Africa.
