The State of Idaho has developed four sister state relationships in an effort to promote closer relations and cooperation in industry, government, agriculture, tourism, culture and education.

In an effort to promote mutual understanding between the people of Idaho and Shanxi Province, Governor John Evans of Idaho and Vice Governor Bai Qingcai of Shanxi signed the Sister State agreement in 1985.
Like Idaho, Shanxi Province, located in northeast China, is known for its natural beauty. With a land size approximately seven times the size of Idaho, Shanxi Province has a population of 25 million. The capital is Taiyuan. Its climate is much like southwest Idaho’s, with cold winters and sunny, hot summers. It is also a major producer of coal, potatoes, and rice.
