Sister City Program of Gainesville, Inc.
to Gainesville Sister Cities.
A sister city, county, or state relationship is a broad-based, officially approved, long-term partnership between two communities, counties, or states in two countries. A sister city, county or state relationship becomes official with a signing ceremony of the top-elected officials of the two local jurisdictions, following approval by the local city councils (county commissions or state legislatures), as appropriate.
Sister city partnerships have the potential to carry out the widest possible diversity of activities of any international program, including every type of municipal, business, professional, educational and cultural exchange, or project. Sister city programs are also unique in that they inherently involve the three main sectors in a community: local government, businesses, and a wide variety of citizen volunteers (and civil society or non-profit organizations).
Gainesville has nine established Sister City relationships around the world.
