The Sister City concept evolved from President Eisenhower's "People-to-People" program, established in 1956 to lessen the chance of future world conflicts and to involve people from all walks of life in personal diplomacy.
Bellevue has four existing Sister Cities relationships in Taiwan, Japan, the Czech Republic, and Latvia. Separately, Bellevue has international trade cooperation efforts underway with other countries such as China and India. These international efforts enrich the cultural and business profile of our city, and they provide a meaningful connection between Bellevue's richly diverse population and numerous areas across the globe.
