We welcome all to the City of Dallas, an international community with a diverse population and thriving workforce. The City is committed to growing its global presence while enhancing our international culture right here at home.
We work closely with the Mayor’s Office to create strategic partnerships to advance the City’s international programs and priorities. Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson is committed to improving the City’s standing among global investors, foreign governments and international tourists. In January 2020, Mayor Eric Johnson created the Mayor’s International Advisory Council (MIAC) to advise him on the following:
Mayor Johnson appointed former U.S. Ambassadors Richard Fisher, Kathryn Hall, Robert Jordan, James C. Oberwetter, Jeanne L. Phillips, Kay Bailey Hutchison and Mark Landale. The seven members have expertise in diplomatic relations and international business.
The City of Dallas has worked to build Sister & Friendship City relationships around the globe. These relationships help create and strengthen partnerships between Dallas and the international community. The program aims to build global cooperation at the municipal level by promoting cultural understanding and stimulating economic development between Dallas and its foreign counterparts.
