 Atlanta's Sister Cities Commission


The City of Atlanta joined the sister cities movement on June 23, 1967 when then-Mayor Ivan Allen Jr. forged Atlanta's first sister city relationship with Salzburg, Austria. In 1974, then-Mayor Maynard Jackson created the Atlanta Sister Cities Commission to oversee Atlanta's sister city efforts with its original five sister cities.

Today, the City of Atlanta fosters 17 sister city relationships with communities across the globe. The Atlanta Sister Cities Commission has continued to expand its programming by promoting mutually beneficial cultural, educational, economic, and community development exchanges. The Commission has positioned itself to enhance its efforts through increased marketing, a charitable foundation and increased staff support from the Mayor's Office of International Affairs.
