What is a Sister City?
A Sister City is a broad-based, officially approved long-term part-nership between two com-munities in two countries. A Sister City relationship becomes official with a signing ceremony of the top-elected officials of the two local jur-isdictions, following approval by the local city councils. Sister City partnerships have the potential to carry out the widest possible diversity of activities.
