The Sister City Advisory Committee is an Advisory Committee. Its purpose is to provide cross-cultural understanding and build vibrant and connected communities and generating mutual benefits for both cities through educational, cultural, professional, economic and humanitarian exchange.
It is also expected that activities coordinated through the Sister City Program can facilitate the identification and development of business and trade opportunities between Darwin and its Sister Cities. However, such opportunities will then be assessed and acted upon by local businesses/industries.
City of Darwin has one Sister City Advisory Committee for seven sister cities, including Ambon (Indonesia), Anchorage (US), Dili (Timor-Leste), Haikou (China), Kalymnos (Greece), Milikapiti (Northern Territory, Australia) and Denpasar (Indonesia).
