Miami-Dade links to County Cork, Ireland
Written by Miami Today on June 8, 2017
Miami-Dade will be reaching out to County Cork, Ireland, to become family of sorts now that both communities have expressed desire to establish a Sister Cities relationship. County commissioners passed the legislation sponsored by Jose “Pepe” Diaz this week.
According to the resolution, trade and tourism are a significant portion of both communities’ economy, and Miami-Dade and County Cork want to cooperate to further trade, tourism, cultural and educational opportunities.
Miami-Dade’s Sister Cities program, founded in 1981, has established relationships with 26 cities in South America, the Caribbean, Europe, Africa and Asia.
