History 历史

In 1979, St. Louis was linked with the city of Nanjing (formally Nanking) and became the FIRST U.S. municipality to have a sister city in the People’s Republic of China. The St. Louis – Nanjing Sister City Committee has sponsored many exchanges that have touched thousands of people in our two communities from school children to corporate leaders. Mayors of both cities have led official trade delegations and given enthusiastic support to our sister city activities.
