This cultural activity is the result of the many sister city relationships in the Greater Seattle area. Sister relationships extend to ports and counties and include elements of business as well: Snohomish County representatives visited their sister county Tainan, Taiwan in 2016 to cultivate opportunities for cooperation in the development of sectors that are strategic to both economies.
This year marks the 60th year anniversary of the Seattle-Kobe Sister relationship, the oldest sister relationship in Washington state. A slew of cultural and business events are scheduled to take place in Seattle in conjunction with a Kobe delegation visit at the end of July. For more information click here.
