Five cities in Asia will soon be added to Quezon City’s long list of sister cities.
The City Council has passed several resolutions expressing QC’s willingness to establish sister-city agreements with Yangon in Myanmar, Hanoi in Vietnam, Bangkok in Thailand, Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
The council has authorized Mayor Herbert Bautista to establish sister-city relationships with these five cities by the resolutions it approved.
Quezon City is trying to promote socio-cultural, trade and economic development, especially in the areas of transportation and tourism; education, culture, youth and sports; environment and urban management and human resources; and science and technology.
To date, QC has international sister cities relations with Daly City, California, USA; Agana, Guam; Yuci City, Shanxi Province, China; Shenyang City, China; New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada; Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA; Kenosha City, Wisconsin, USA; Chiba City, Japan; Maui, Hawaii, USA; and Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.
