Urban Diplomacy

The administrations of cities in almost every country in the world establish "diplomatic" relations between cities as "brothers" with other countries. This widespread practice has economic, touristic and cultural benefits and the residents of those cities get closer to each other. At the entrance of many cities, there are signs showing which cities have sister city relations. Urban Diplomacy, or as it has been used recently, "paradiplomacy", that is international local diplomacy, has become a unique and highly valued field of public diplomacy.
