Friendship Cities

What is a Friendship City?

Friendship City Agreements are usually the first step on the road to becoming a Sister City. Some have described Friendship City relationships are 'the engagement before the marriage'. Whereas Sister City relationships require approval from both cities' respective city councils, Friendship City Agreements can be made between Mayors.
