  Anhui remains committed to developing friendly overseas relationships. Against such a background, the province endeavors to strengthen mutual understanding and solidarity with its foreign partners, and thereby expands external exchange channels. Up to now, the province has established sister-city (-state or-province) relationships with 65 states (districts or counties) and cities of 31 foreign countries. The number of establishing friendly inter-province (state) relationship ranks Anhui ahead of other provinces in the central area of China. Anhui has also built up friendly exchange ties with more than 50 international friendly organizations and groups, maintains close friend contacts with more than 100 overseas Chinese societies and organizations of foreign residents of Chinese origins. The sister-city relationship is an integral part of the province's external relationship. Anhui is now forming a multi-level, multi-channel and all-directional pattern of opening up to the outside world.
