International Relations

Actively engaged in international relations

Rockhampton Regional Council is committed to forging strong international relations. We actively promote Sister and Friendship City agreements that provide invaluable platforms for our businesses and communities to engage in trade and investment, international education, tourism and business opportunities.

Through these relationships we share information, exchange contacts, create mutually beneficial opportunities, undertake cultural diversity projects and gain valuable perspective within our respective markets.

Rockhampton Regional Council currently has established agreements with two Sister Cities and one Friendship city. Our relationship with Ibusuki City, in Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan has endured since 1980. International relations were expanded in 2016 by our sister city agreement with Zhenjiang, Jiangsu Province, China, and our most recent friendship agreement with Huizhou, Guangdong Province, China.
