International Sister/Friendship Cities and Cities with Official Agreements Dallas (U.S.A.)

[Date of Affiliation] August 29, 1997

Dallas

Reason for Affiliation

Before Sendai and Dallas were assigned as International Friendship Cities, they had been corresponding at a grass-roots level in terms of business and academia. In November, 1992, the Mayor of Dallas, Mr. Steve Bartlett, expressed a desire for exchange between Dallas and Sendai in the cultural, educational, and industrial fields. Following this, Sendai and Dallas visited each other for five years with the young ambassador program and the citizens’ delegation. Through these connections, the bond between Sendai and Dallas citizens grew stronger and the international friendship city agreement was established.
