Pittsburgh renews tie to sister city in Japan

Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013, 1:30 p.m.
 

Pittsburgh reaffirmed its sister city status on Tuesday with Saitama City, Japan.

The two cities have been linked for 15 years by an agreement to promote friendship, foster mutual understanding and cooperation and encourage mutual growth and continued renaissance for both cities.

Saitama City Mayor Hayato Shimizu appeared before City Council with a delegation of dignitaries to sign a new Sister City Agreement. An informal relationship between the two cities began in 1981, featuring an exchange of students, business, sports teams, educators and cultural groups.
