Sister City relationships foster the growth of a mutual understanding and long-term friendship between countries and regions, as well as the communities within them. This bond allows for a continuous exchange of ideas and culture, and even facilitates development within the areas of trade and tourism.
Sister Cities aims to foster cross-border communications – a mutual exchange of ideas, people, and materials in a range of cultural, educational, youth, sports, municipal, professional, and technical projects. The establishment of sister city friendships stimulates interaction between people of different cultures and countries on a people-to-people basis.
QLDC enjoys a sister city relationship with Aspen, Colorado, USA. Queenstown also has a ‘friendship city’ relationship with Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China, along with a Memorandum of Understanding with Ulsan City, in South Korea to work together on tourism and promotion.
