Futian district signed a friendly exchange and cooperation memorandum with Iiyama of Japan’s Nagano prefecture. The agreement is expected to expand Futian’s current education related cooperation with the Japanese city covering areas such as economic development, culture, arts, trade, tourism and sports.
So far Futian is the first district in Shenzhen to establish a cooperation memorandum agreement with an international city. This agreement further strengthens contacts and cooperation with Iiyama in tourism by encouraging Shenzheners to visit resorts in the Japanese city to get a better understanding on its history and culture. To further economic development, both sides will increase their efforts in boosting exchanges between economic organizations and enterprises, and encourage activities such as commodity purchases and sales.
The signing of the memorandum is part of the ongoing efforts of the district to become an international urban district as it aims to raise their international profile by expanding international exchanges and cooperation.
