St. Thomas Mayor Heather Jackson and St. Thomas' Economic Development Manager Sean Dyke will be going to China next month to visit St. Thomas' sister city - Xuyi. Jackson and Dyke will be in Xuyi, China for one week. Xuyi is located just under 5 hours northeast of Shanghai on China's east coast.
This will be Jackson's 4th trip to Xuyi. The two will be there during the city's International Crayfish Festival.
Jackson says she enjoys being there during the festival.
Jackson says that she does not know the exact plans for the trip yet but says that over the years there has been more of an open dialogue between the cities.
All of the expenses of past trips have been paid for by the Xuyi government.
