Hirakata as an International City
In Hirakata, many foreign residents are living for study or work. Hirakata City Hall always strives to develop the city as an international-friendly city.
So far, Hirakata City concluded international sister city agreements with three areas; City of Logan (Australia), Changning District (China), and Yeongam County (Korea). Hirakata City accepted many envoys from those areas and strived to deepen the internationalisation of Hirakata City.
