Mayor Reed heads to Paris for summit

ATLANTA -- Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed is headed to Paris to take part in a global summit on urban development.

The office of the Consulate General of France in Atlanta says the mayor is headed to the New Cities Summit, which brings together urban planners, business leaders, politicians and others to discuss city planning.

It follows a recent nine-day economic development mission Reed held with business leaders in China. The consulate says he'll be in France from Sunday to Thursday.

It's Reed's second trip to Paris since taking office. He attended a forum last year on airports where he made a pact with Paris officials to promote both cities' airports for economic development.
