The first initiative to form this twinning was put forward by the Mayor, Joe Cassar, after meeting a member of the Giunta di Borgo Maggiore, Republic of San Marino. After a consensus to proceed, the first visit was done by a delegation from Borgo Maggiore led by their Mayor, Capitano di Castello, Orazio Pignatta. This meeting was a great success and the two sides decided to promote the twinning. In October Mayor Joe Cassar led a Zurrieq delegation to reciprocate this visit and start the final touches for the twinning to take place.
In June, 2000, a delegation headed by the Capitano di Castello (Mayor) of Borgo Maggiore, San Marino visited Zurrieq to sign the twinning agreement. The twinning of the two localites was officalised by the Mayor of Zurrieq Mr.Joe Cassar and Il Capitano di Castello di Borgo Maggiore, Signor Pier Orazio, Pignatta, on the 1st of June, 2000 Zurrieq Day by the signature of the twinning declaration highlighting mutual friendship and collaboration between the two communities. In September, 2001, a Maltese delegation made up of all the Council members visited Borgo Maggiore to reciprocate and finalised the twinning process, which was held in Borgo Maggiore on the 18th of Spetember, 2001 by Il Capitano di Castello di Borgo Maggiore, Signor Pier Orazio Pignatta and Mayor of Zurrieq, Mrs Antonia Farrugia.
The Zurrieq Local Council and the Municipality of Morphou, Republic of Cyprus, are twinned for a special cause. .The Morphou community was forced to exile its homeland in this part of Cyprus was invaded by Turkey. The Zurrieq community fully supports the right of every Morphou citizen to re-gain his homeland. The twinning agreement was signed in Cyprus on October 7th, 2000 by the then Vice Mayor of Zurrieq Mrs. Antonia Farrugia.

The Zurrieq Local Council saw the importance of tightening certain links between Zurrieq and the Town of Angermunde, in Germany, after certain initiatives were taken to collaborate in EU matters and exchange projects with ABW (a training centre for youths in the job sector).
Angermunde is situated in Brandenburg, one of the sixteen states of Germany. It is just only 70Km up North to Berlin. It is a small rural Town situated in the east part of Germany, where the war didn’t made so much damage. The Origin of this Town dates back to 1233AD, and many features of those times are still visible.
 A Sports Seminar was held in Angermunde in September 2004 where 13 persons, 10 of these youths,
participated in a seminar and in sports events. Zurrieq youths achieved a first place in volleyball, best player in volleyball, and second in football, all this amongst 6 countries. From this success story more contacts where made and more projects came along. 
 On various occasions during these years, delegations met in preparation for agreeing on the terms of reference for signing a twinning, and on the 2nd of September 2007, a delegation from Angermunde came to Zurrieq and Mr Volkhard Maas - responsible for twinnings in the Local Parliament of Angermunde and the Mayor of Zurrieq Mr Ignatius Farrugia signed the first step to this already flourishing relationship between the two Towns. On the 26th of January 2008, a delegation from Zurrieq went to Angermunde where the Mayor of Angermunde Mr Krakow and Councilor Mario Ellul for Zurrieq signed to reciprocate and finalize the twinning process.
