Sister County Relationships

In 1988, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors directed its Chief Administrative Officer to investigate and make recommendations on the feasibility of establishing sister county relationships with jurisdictions in other countries that have common characteristics and interests. The purpose of sister county relationships is to further global understanding through people-to-people, community-to-community contacts on a continuing long-term basis. 

Operating under a specific set of guidelines, the County has established sister county relationships with:

  • Taipei County (1996);
  • City of Huhhot in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region (2000); and
  • Rome Province (2006).
