The City of Tacoma entered into its 14th sister city relationship with Boca Del Rio, Mexico in 2016. The City is excited by this new relationship. Mexico is a very important partner for Washington State and the Puget Sound region.
This new partnership will open up many economic and cultural doors for Tacoma. The Puget Sound Latino Chamber of Commerce (PSLCC) recommended Boca del Rio as a sister-city partner to City of Tacoma because of the commonalities and interest in the arts, education, festivals, food, and cultural diversity.
A few of the evolving projects include education exchanges, art exhibits, economic development partnerships, trade missions, and tourism.
