On December 19, the 42nd meeting of the 12th Anhui Provincial People’s Congress Standing Committee heard a statement by Wang Xin, director-general of Anhui Provincial Foreign Affairs Office, on “Proposal for Examination and Approval of the Establishment of Sister Province-Shire Ties between Anhui and Derbyshire of England”.

The meeting reviewed and approved the “Proposal for Examination and Approval of the Establishment of Sister Province-Shire Ties between Anhui and Derbyshire of England” by Anhui Provincial Government.

The participants present at the meeting expressed the view that the establishment of the relationship will be conducive for Anhui to further expanding open-up, better serving Anhui in the construction of “Belt and Road” Initiative as well as building Anhui into an inland new high ground for open-up.

In early November, 2017, a delegation led by Berry Lewis, the top executive of Derbyshire and president of British Derbyshire County Council, visited Anhui. Governor Li Guoying and President Lewis co-signed “Agreement on Friendly Province-Shire Relationship between Anhui Province of People's Republic of China and Derbyshire, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland”.

So far, Anhui has established relationship of sister provinces (cities) with 91 provinces (states, districts and counties) in 36 countries on 6 continents around the world, including 20 pairs of provincial sister cities and 71 pairs of municipal sister cities.
