Introduction of Jinan's Sister Cities
The ‘Friendship Cities’, also known in the world the ‘Sister Cities’, are the cities with matching status between countries. The aim is to maintain the world peace, improve friendships with each other, and promote common progress. Both sides proactively engage in communications and cooperation in politics, economy, science and technology, education, culture, health, sports, environment conservation, and teenager interactions. Thus we name such formal, comprehensive, and long-term arrangements of friendship or system as ‘Sister Cities’. Strongly supported by the Jinan Foreign Affairs Office, Jinan Sister-City Website is set up and devoted to promoting the sister city cultures and exchange interactions, providing opportunities enabling Jinan citizens to appreciate the styles of the sister cities, and establishing a platform of comprehensive services for a large range of exchanges between the sister cities.
