AUICK Assciate Cities
The AUICK Associate Cities
(AACs) are Chittagong (Bangladesh), Weihai (China), Chennai (India),
Surabaya (Indonesia), Kuantan (Malaysia), Faisalabad (Pakistan),
Olongapo (Philippines), Khon Kaen (Thailand), and Danang (Vietnam).
Chittagong, Chennai, Surabaya,
Kuantan, Faisalabad, Olongapo, Khon
Kaen, and Danang have dispatched their senior officials to our past
training courses, through which we have developed our friendship into
the AUICK Associate Cities Network.
With regard to Weihai, we had
not invited any senior official to our
past training courses before 2004. We had been searching for
medium-sized city suitable for our activities in China, and we
requested the UNFPA China Office to recommend a suitable medium-sized
city. The UNFPA China Office then kindly requested that the National
Population and Family Planning Commission (NPFPC) recommend a city.
NPFPC recommended three candidate cities, including Weihai, for our
suitable partner in China, and we chose Weihai because it is a port
city like the City of Kobe.
