The New Memorandum Celebrating 35 Years of Friendship

In October 2023, Joe and Lisa Hamrick travelled to Liuzhou to celebrate our 35-year Sister City relationship and sign a new five-year Memorandum of Understanding.  While in Liuzhou we met with officials of the new seven story Liuzhou Library, attended the Opening of the 13th Annual International Auto Exposition, and visited many schools where we got to talk with students and faculty.  Our trip ended with the highlight M.O.U. Signing Ceremony extending our friendship for another five years. 

The video "Deep Friendship: Spanning Mountains and Seas" celebrates the 35-year relationship between Cincinnati and Liuzhou.                   Click for detailed information about Liuzhou.
