On October 28, 2021, a Sister City Agreement was signed between Phoenix, Arizona and Suwon, Korea. These two cities signed the agreement, establishing Phoenix, Arizona’s 11th Sister City partnership, while it is the first U.S. based sister city partnership for Suwon.
Phoenix’s sister cities are the following:
The partnership will also promise business exchanges and possible foreign investments, as Suwon is home to Samsung, the multinational electronics manufacturer.
As sister cities are about building trust and forging a strong relationship with an international city that shares similar values, we hope that Phoenix and Suwon have a fruitful and strong relationship.
Congratulations, Phoenix and Suwon sister cities!
