El Paso participates in the 2019 Sister Cities Conference

The City of El Paso is participating in the Cities Mean Business: 2019 Annual Conference in Houston, Texas as part of the Sister Cities International organization.

“Sister Cities International allows El Paso to connect globally and thrive locally and thus helps us to promote our culture, tourism and regional economy,” said Jessica Herrera Director of Economic and International Development.

“By building and strengthening relationships with cities from around the world we can collaborate and share best practices, which will help us to grow and strengthen our vibrant regional economy.”

City officials are also participating in the 4th China – U.S. Mayor’s Summit as part of the conference and have met with various country representatives.

El Paso currently has a sister city agreement with Ciudad Juarez, Mexico and Hadera, Israel.

As part of the sister city agreement with Juarez, El Paso is scheduled to host the 2020 U.S. – Mexico Mayor’s Summit early next year, which will be attended by elected officials and business leaders.

Sister Cities International serves as the national membership organization for sister city programs in nearly 500 communities, with relationships in over 2,000 communities in more than 140 countries.

The Summit is the fourth in its ongoing bi-national series of Summits to reaffirm and strengthen sister city relationships in key countries.

The purpose is to bring together mayors, elected officials, business executives, city managers, and educators.
