Kaohsiung, Sept. 4 (CNA) Kaohsiung City Mayor Chen Chu (陳菊) signed a letter of intent with Busan Mayor Suh Byung-soo in Kaoshiung on Monday to promote artistic and cultural exchange between the two cities.

Chen greeted Suh and 17 city officials from Busan, Kaoshiung's longtime sister city of 51 years, at Kaohsiung City Hall with a dance performance by kindergarten students.

The two mayors signed a letter of intent to promote exchanges between artists, cultural centers and libraries to enhance the artistic development of both cities.

In a speech to welcome the mayor, Chen commented on the long relationship Kaohsiung and Busan share, which has included exchanges in culture, education and tourism.

Chen visited Busan last year and praised the urban development of the city. She also noted Suh's visit today was a sign of support for further bilateral cooperation.
