Sanya signed letters of intent at the opening ceremony of the 6th Sanya International Cultural Industry Fair (SICIF) on Dec 24 to establish sister city relationships with Lida in Belarus, Punta del Este in Uruguay, and Batumi in Georgia.

Lida is located in the Grodno region of Western Belarus and is one of the most popular tourist destinations for Chinese tourists in Eastern Europe. The new sister city agreement is expected to boost tourism in both cities after the epidemic.

Punta del Este is located in Southeastern Uruguay and is popular among affluent residents of South America. The city's tourist information center has promoted Sanya's tourism products to a large number of South American tourists since 2019.

Batumi is the second largest city in Georgia and an important seaport, as well as the capital of the Autonomous Republic of Adjara in Southwest Georgia. The Georgian ambassador and envoy participated in SICIF in 2019 and 2020, and the sister city relationship will further propel exchanges between the two cities in the fields of tourism, business and culture.
