An introduction to Shandong Province, China


Shandong Province in China and Yamaguchi Prefecture signed a document of concord in August 1982. They have used these friendly relations constructively since then, to work together in many fields. Most of their efforts have been directed towards protecting the environment, the economy, tourism, agriculture, fishing, and culture.

For five years, beginning in 1998, numerous volunteers from Yamaguchi participated in the planting of 500 hectares of forest on the banks of the Yellow River, to prevent sand from being blown away, and thereby protect the environment.

To celebrate 20 years since the signing of the document of concord, Governor Nii visited Shandong province in 2002, and pledged to keep promoting friendly relations between the two areas.
