The Sister City program launches peoples’ diplomacy in the spirit of the 21st century. The Baltimore-Luxor-Alexandria Sister City Committee fosters cooperation and understanding among the American city of Baltimore, Maryland, and the two historical Egyptian cities, Luxor and Alexandria, through exchanges of individuals and groups interested in technology and business, urban development, education, literature and more. We believe that cooperation among people is more complete if it successfully combines, in a practical manner, culture, social and business interests.

Our Committee has launched many projects, including art exhibits, folk dance and singing events, student and visitor exchanges, tours to Egypt, an information technology partnership conference, and most recently, a water quality project.
