The City of Davis has numerous official Sister Cities around the world. Many of them reflect shared interests or environmental situations. Inside of City Hall one can find glass cases highlighting our sister cities. Events and meetings about specific Sister Cities are frequently held at International House. For general information on Sister Cities visit sister-cities.org.
It is interesting to note that when the People's Republic of Davis chose Uman, Qufu and Wuxi as sister cities, they were all located within communist countries.
Sangju prides itself as being a city of bikes with strong agricultural and educational fields. The bilingual document proclaiming our sisterhood declares as a goal "maintaining world peace and the use of bicycles for a friendly environment."
Inuyama, a former castle city, is a bustling industrial center.
The "glittering economic star" of Wuxi shares with Davis an agricultural history, a strong educational system and millions of bikes (although Davis doesn't really have millions of bikes... yet).
