Our Sister City
Columbus became Sister Cities with Tainan City on September 9, 1980. This made Tainan City the first Sister City that Columbus had in Asia.
Tainan and Columbus have accomplished a great deal over the course of our relationship. One of our more notable, and recent projects being the earthquake relief fund we developed to help aid Tainan after a devastating earthquake occurred in 2016.
