Mission Statement of the Cincinnati-Kharkiv Sister City Partnership

We believe that our cooperation will enhance civic, cultural and economic potential for both cities. We, in Cincinnati, hope to share our ideas and experiences in the development of individual liberty, human rights and freedom, democracy, market economy and entrepreneurial skills.

Our Program is recognized as one of the most successful and active sister city relationships in the U.S.A. and one of the most active of all USA-NIS sister city pairs.

The mission of the Cincinnati-Kharkiv Sister City Partnership is to establish goodwill, understanding and cooperation between the people of Cincinnati and the people of Kharkiv and thereby to develop lasting friendships and increased interchange of ideas, goods and services between our two cities.
