The City of Kamloops and our Sister City of Uji, Japan, have decided to postpone the official delegation visit to Kamloops. Kamloops was scheduled to host the delegation at the end of June.
Our Sister City relationship with Uji was officially formalized on July 1, 1990 by Mayor Phil Gaglardi. This year, the City of Kamloops was planning a 30th anniversary celebration of cultural awareness, economic development, and tourism between the two municipalities.
“It’s important for everyone to stay safe during this period of uncertainty,” said Mayor Ken Christian. “We wish Mayor Yamamoto and the people of Uji City safety and good health, and we look forward to celebrating this important relationship together in 2021.”
