The concept of twin cities or twin cities is a legal and social agreement between cities, municipalities, oblasts, counties, provinces, prefectures, states, regions between two different countries to promote cultural and commercial relations. During President Xi Jinping`s visit to India in September, an agreement was signed, establishing relations between Ahmedabad and Guangzhou with the partnership with the city. Gujarat and Guangdong had become sister provinces. Twin cities or twin cities are a form of legal or social agreement between cities, counties, oblasts, prefectures, provinces, regions, states and even countries located in different geographical and political areas, in order to promote cultural and commercial ties. In November 2016, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe sent a memorandum of understanding for relations between the sister states of Gujarat and Hyogo Prefecture, a Japanese prefecture in the Kansai region, on the main island of Honshu, Japan. Kobe is the capital of Hyogo. During his visit, Modi also visited a high-speed train in Kobe. Kobe is located in Hyogo Prefecture, Japan. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe have also concluded a sister state agreement for Gujarat and Hyogo Prefecture. A Memorandum of Understanding (Letter of Intent, LoI) was exchanged between Ahmedabad and the Japanese city of Kobe for a town twinning.
The LoI was exchanged in the presence of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who visited Kobe to address a major event in the Indian diaspora. Three other Indian cities will have twin cities in China and provincial relations will be established between Karnataka and Sichuan. It was one of 24 agreements signed this morning during Prime Minister Narendra Modi`s three-day inaugural visit to the country between India and China. India and China have decided to establish relations between Tamil Nadu and Fujian province. In diplomacy, the concept of twinned cities is seen as a way to improve strategic relations between two nations, both culturally and economically. While the moUs signed on September 17, 2014 between Ahmedabad and Guangzhou (for the twin city project) and Gujarat and Guangdong (for the sister state project) are dusty, several efforts by the state government to address the authorities of that city have met with a lukewarm reaction. . .
