Guiyang is Fort Worth’s eighth Sister City, and as the number eight is an auspicious one in Chinese language, bringing to mind prosperity and good fortune, this partnership with one of the most beautiful and diverse cities in China is a success. The capital of Guizhou province, Guiyang has always been a cultural and economic hub of the region, and is now becoming a center for high tech business while holding on to its green space. Our cities have collaborated on a number of exchanges, including with youth, artists, business people and governmental representatives. We look forward to creating even stronger ties in this post-COVID world.
Experience Guiyang, China
Guiyang’s eagerness for cultural exchanges has resulted in unique opportunities, including:
- Children’s art ensembles
- International Leadership Academy participation, with Guiyang students and teachers coming to Fort Worth in July and spending two weeks with students from our seven other Sister Cities
- Recognition of our program’s strong people-to-people ties between these two countries through the 2014 U.S.-China Sister Cities Youth Award
