Sister Cities

Sister Cities link New Zealand cities, towns, districts and ports with overseas counterparts in order to develop closer social, cultural, economic, sporting and political relationships.

Sister-Cities relationships aim to increase global co-operation at a local level, promote cultural understanding, stimulate economic development and foster a citizens' network of organisations and individuals devoted to creating and strengthening partnerships between New Zealand and international communities.
The Sister Cities concept is unique: It is two-way; the give and take is shared by both sides; it provides for planned and continuous contact between the cities involved and their citizens; it brings together both municipalities' volunteer resources at the local level; it offers a mechanism at the community level for anyone or organisation to become involved in international relations.

There are approximately 140 sister city relationships between New Zealand and overseas communities.
