Mission Statement

The Los Angeles Beirut Sister City Committee was established to create a bridge of understanding and friendship between the residents of these two great cities, and to foster cultural, social, and business exchanges.

Sisterly ties were initiated on August 27, 2005 by Los Angeles Council Member Dennis Zine and Council President Eric Garcetti when they introduced the Council Motion to start the process of making L.A. and Beirut Sister Cities. The formal recognition was established in a signing ceremony at Nicholas Sursock Palace on June 30, 2006. Representing Beirut was Abdulmonem Al-Aris, Former President of the Beirut City Council, and former VP of the Beirut City Council, Tawfic Kfoury.

The Los Angeles-Beirut Sister City Committee is a non-sectarian, non-political organization allowing all who wish to foster goodwill between the two cities to contribute to that goal. Your contribution and support is encouraged.
