Twin Town
Evidence of Commitment

Tuscaloosa

Alabama, USA
Sunyani is about 52km ENE of Techiman and the towns are not twinned administratively within Ghana, but are both capitals of their own Municipal Districts. The twinning with the US city is unusual in that it is made by a partnership of the Ghanaian towns rather than by the two towns individually.
"The Sunyani and Techiman Municipal Assemblies in the Brong-Ahafo Region sealed their sister-city relationship with Tuscaloosa Sister Cities International (TSCI) of Alabama State in the United States of America with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in Sunyani on Wednesday. Mr Kwasi Oppong-Ababio, Sunyani Municipal Chief Executive and Mr Alex Kyeremeh, Techiman Municipal Chief Executive signed for their municipalities whilst Mrs Lisa Keyes, Executive Director of TSCI, signed on behalf of Tuscaloosa City.
...
The MoU, an affirmation of an earlier agreement signed in August 2011, sought among other benefits to explore educational opportunities in the interest of the people within the two municipalities and Tuscaloosa city, deepen and enhance their cultural relationships, and promote tourism and world peace.    

Mr Nyamekye-Marfo, tracing the genesis of the relationship, said he led a nine-member delegation in October 2010 to Tuscaloosa to begin discussion about the relationship which was followed up by another delegation jointly led by the two MCEs in August 2011. ...
He said the region had enormous investment potentials, saying it was the best place to invest in the country and therefore, invited investors to come and establish businesses particularly in the agricultural sector for their mutual benefit.

Mrs Keyes described their trip to the country and especially Brong-Ahafo Region as incredible and memorable, adding that they were looking forward for fruitful cooperation."
