Maximizing Our Region’s Global Identity: San Diego Sister City Relationships


As the eight largest city in the United States, San Diego’s strategic geographic location has been key to making our economy prosper. Connectivity has been critical to our region’s global competitiveness, attracting a total of $15.6 billion of foreign investment in five years due to its top life sciences market, tech scene, presence of distinguished universities and quality of life. To increase our region’s global engagements with international cities, San Diego has established sixteen Sister Cities Societies in which cultural, educational, business, and technical exchanges take place.

Join us on March 9 for a conversation on fostering international ties throughout the San Diego Sister Cities Association by supporting cultural, educational, and economic relationships. Speakers will also share an overview of San Diego’s first Sister City, Yokohama, and other Sister City relationships that have collaborated with the organization in planning and implementing cooperative activities and exchanges.



Through the International Business Affairs Forums, the Chamber provides business leaders with the essential knowledge and resources needed to thrive within the binational marketplace. Attendees also have the opportunity to build and strengthen new relationships, exchange ideas, and debate policies that are relevant to the Cali-Baja business community. Meetings are held monthly, at the San Diego Regional Chamber office or in Tijuana

Registration is open to Chamber members only. If you are not a Chamber member, please contact Joshua Peters, Membership Benefits Coordinator, at to discuss membership opportunities and attending as a guest.
