Revere To Sign Sister City Agreement With Date City, Japan on August 2

July 22, 2016

In recognition of a long partnership between the City of Revere and Date, a city in Japan’s Fukushima prefecture, the two cities will formally sign a sister city agreement at City Hall on Tuesday, August 2 at 11 AM in the City Council Chamber. Signing on behalf of each city will be Revere Mayor Brian Arrigo and Date Mayor Shoji Nishida.

The Sister City Agreement states that the two cities are formalizing their partnership “in order to promote the development of mutual understanding and friendship.”

“Each year, students from Revere and from Date take advantage of a cultural exchange program that has allowed youth from each country to immerse themselves in the other’s culture,” said Mayor Brian Arrigo. “This agreement formalizes the friendship between our two cities, and lays the groundwork for many more decades of cooperation.”

In addition to formally signing a sister city agreement, the two Mayors will exchange gifts and take photos with exchange students and other elected officials. The Mayors will also tour some of Revere’s municipal buildings.

Located in northern Japan, Date has a population of about 62,000. It has a mainly agricultural economy, producing rice, peaches and persimmons.
