International Relations

 

We have three sister and friendly relationships in the world.

The state of Colorado(外部サイトへリンク), USA, is our oldest sister-state. The relationship was established in 1986. It is located in the American West, with the Rocky Mountain chain running through it. It is well known for its nature, with soaring mountains, pristine forests, and the Colorado River, as well as for its winter sports. The capital is Denver, which is also the economic hub of the region.
There are many exchange programs between students of the two areas every year. Also, we hold the Colorado Community Action Program at the University of Denver.

We have also had a friendly relationship with Heilongjiang Province(外部サイトへリンク), People's Republic of China, since 1993. It is located in the northeastern part of the country, and contains the points furthest north and east in China. It has a very harsh sub-Arctic climate, with temperatures in deep winter ranging between –15 and –31 degrees Celsius, and is also largely mountainous. The main industries of the province are lumber, coal, petroleum, and food production. The capital city is Harbin, renowned as the cultural capital of the Northeastern region of China.Many companies in Yamagata take part in the trade fair in Harbin every year.

Yamagata's last sister relationship was established with Papua Province(外部サイトへリンク), Republic of Indonesia, in 1994. It is located at the eastern edge of Indonesia, it takes up most of the western half of the island of New Guinea, and contains large areas covered with rain forest. The climate is tropical, with temperatures on average ranging between 22 and 32 degrees Celsius. The economy is largely based around tourism and agriculture, although some industries such as mining also have a presence. The capital city is Jayapura.

Also, various cities and towns within Yamagata have sister city relationships with other places around the world. These municipalities have secured ties with other places in countries such as Australia, Austria, Germany, China, New Zealand, Brazil, the Unites States, Turkey, Russia, etc. We do have many people from many countries, and our ties are strong. Yamagata is definitely an area that is open to the world.
