City introduction

Joondalup is located on the west coast of Australia, only 26 km north of central Perth, the capital of the state of Western Australia. With Western Australia's second most government agencies in the city, Joondalup covers 96 square kilometers. On July 30, 2008, the population of the city was 160,000, of which people under the age of 25 accounted for nearly 38 percent. It also has 16 km of beautiful coastline. On Sept 4, 2004, it established a sister city relationship with our city.

The city is a concentration of universities, with colleges for police training, technology and continuing education. In recent years, the city has become one of the fastest-growing cities in Australia. Joondalup has perfect infrastructure, convenient water and land transport, a rapidly developing third industrial sector, with high quality services for residents, commercial facilities and entertainment venues throughout the city, as well as advanced information technology and the most advanced computer management system in Australia. The city is building itself to be an education and digital city.

Due to the restricted urban development of eastern Australia, the future focus will turn to Western Australia. Joondalup boasts a great location, abundant resources, advanced infrastructure, strong development momentum and promising prospects.

Joondalup only has one international friendly city, Jinan, at present.

Joondalup and Jinan

Since our establishment of a sister city relationship with Joondalup, the friendly exchange visits have been carried out smoothly. Joondalup sends a delegation every year to participate in the tourism fair, the international children's festival and other major activities in Jinan. In terms of cultural education, we have achieved fruitful results in communication. In September 2004, John Peterson, the chairman of a Joondalup committee, led a delegation to visit our city and formally sign the agreement for the sister-city relationship. In August 2005, Bao Zhiqiang, the mayor of Jinan, led a delegation to visit Joondalup. In September 2007, Troy Pekka, the new mayor of Joondalup, led a delegation to visit Jinan.
