Here, Dennis Hovenden, CEO of Frankston City Council in Victoria shares his thoughts on the visit
Frankston City Council was fortunate to host five delegates from across Nepal.
The opportunity to spend time with the delegates, and to get to know them and understand their needs and issues, has been mutually beneficial. They were engaged and engaging and very keen to learn from us and equally keen to share their experiences and express their needs.
Obviously, Frankston is very different from Kathmandu and even more different when compared to rural or regional Nepal. For a start, we have a beach which most of the delegates had never seen before!
