Xiamen Friendship City Photo Exhibition 2023 Celebrating the Anniversaries of Friendship City relationships opened on Sept 8 in Xiamen, East China's Fujian province.

The photo exhibition displayed the cultural customs and exchanges of the seven cities.

Chen Zixuan, deputy director of the Standing Committee of the Xiamen People's Congress, said that Xiamen has over the past four decades made significant achievements and forged closer ties with international cities.

International friendly city relationships play an active role in promoting the internationalization of a city and boosting its development.

Xiamen has since 1983 forged sister city relations with 22 cities, international friendly exchange relations with 14 cities, and friendly relations with 17 international ports. 

The photo exhibition was held at the Xiamen International Convention and Exhibition Center from Sept 8 to 11.
