Dongguan Forges Sister-city Relations With HartfordThis economic spearhead in south China's Guangdong Province forged a sister-city relationship with Hartford, capital of the US State of Connecticut, Thursday.
After signing the sister-city agreement, Mayor of Dongguan Dong Xing and Mayor of Hartford Michael Peters vowed to promote cooperation between the two cities in the fields of industry, trade, technology, education and culture.
