Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed is racking up the frequent flyer miles.

The mayor will make his second trip to Paris since taking office for the New Cities Summit, a global gathering on urban development.

The summit brings together urban planners, architects, business leaders, academics and politicians to discuss “innovative” approaches to issues of city planning, according to a news release. A spokeswoman for the mayor said the trip comes at no cost to taxpayers.

The trip follows a recent nine-day economic development mission Reed held with business leaders in China.
