Jiang yin, China is Alameda’s current active Sister City as recognized by Sister City International. This relationship dates back to 2006. The memorandum of understanding establishing Jiang yin and Alameda as Sister Cities was signed in 2008.


Alameda has a significant population of people of Filipino heritage and similar to Alameda, Dumaguete is a beautiful coastal city. In August of 2013, Ms. Cynthia Bonta carried greetings to Dumaguete on behalf of ASCA with an official invitation from the Mayor to become sister cities. The goal of signing the official Sister City agreement was completed on June 5, 2015.


Alameda’s relationship with Asuchio dates back to 1998 when a delegation from St. Philip Neri Catholic Church in Alameda visited Asuchio and began ties with the Catholic community in Asuchio and neighboring Zaragoza, both in the department of La Libertad. A goal of official status, with a signed agreement between Asuchio and Alameda is being considered.
