LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville has big hopes for a new connection, halfway around the world.
This afternoon, Mayor Greg Fischer and Mayor Suleyman Disli of Adepazari, Turkey signed a new partnership, making the two "sister cities."
Mayor Fischer says the move will benefit Louisville in many ways.
"We feel the work that we're going in our automotive sectors and advanced manufacturing is very complementary with the work that you guys have in this area, and we can learn from each other," Fischer says.
With today's signing, Adapazari becomes Louisville's 9th sister city.
