Newcastle's International Relations



Newcastle upon Tyne is a truly international city and has a long, proud tradition of working with people, organisations and countries from around the world.  Strong international relations improve and enhance opportunities for the city and the people who live here.  Newcastle has a range of formal and informal relationships.  Some of these date back to the peace and friendship movements that emerged after World War II, while newer relationships are often built around business, culture and education.
