Trilateral Environmental Cooperation Continues Jiangsu Province - Ishikawa Prefecture - North Jeolla Province
Jiangsu Province North Jeolla Province Ishikawa Prefecture

Jiangsu (China), Ishikawa (Japan) and North Jeolla (Korea) conduct environment exchanges at the working-level.

The exchanges among the three began when Jiangsu and North Jeolla concluded a sister/friendship city agreement in October 1994, Jiangsu and Ishikawa signed an agreement on friendship exchange in November 1995, and Ishikawa and North Jeolla signed the Agreement on Friendly Exchange on September 2001.

A regular program run by the three regions is the Environmental Cooperation Trilateral Program. Started as a bilateral program between Ishikawa and North Jeolla in 2003, the program became trilateral in 2006 following the inclusion of Jiangsu and continues to this day.

Since 2003: CJK Environmental Cooperation Forum Held on a Rotational Basis
The three regions hold review sessions and cultural exchange events among the public servants in charge of environment preservation on a rotational basis, to cooperate and share understanding in dealing with environmental problems, a common important issue for the three regions. The forum, which was postponed twice since 2020 due to COVID-19, will resume as soon as the pandemic situation in each country alleviates.
