New Plymouth has two sister cities: Mishima in Japan and Kunming in China. Our city has formed great relationships with both cities, with numerous social and economic benefits.
Prior to the signing of a formal sister city agreement, the links between Kunming, Yunnan Province and New Plymouth District involved regular contact between the horticulture, education and business sectors.
Sister city links were formalised with Mishima City in 1991.
