Message from the Mayor

Welcome to the Greater Columbus Sister Cities International website.

I’m proud to say that Columbus has a very diverse population that is reflected in our sister city connections throughout the world. Because of the diversity of our arts, culture, economy and neighborhoods, our city is part of a global community and has begun to take its rightful place on the international stage.

Columbus values its sister cities relationships because it is one more tool to expand our borders, our trade opportunities, our experiences and our world. Columbus Sister Cities International’s programs directly assist in reducing barriers and building strong relationships that lead to successful business development. By building these strong collaborations, Columbus is playing a major international role that is critical to growth in the 21st century.

Please take the time to peruse the Greater Columbus Sister Cities International website to learn more about Columbus’ Sister Cities.

Mayor Andrew J. Ginther,
Honorary Board Chair
