Xianyang is a city of five million, located in Shaanxi Province in north central China. The Wei River, a tributary of the Yellow River, flows through its center. Established more than 3000 years ago, it was the capital city of the first Chinese emperor. Xianyang has a diverse mix of industry and institutions of art, culture, and higher education. Lying in a region of abundant soft coal heavily used by its industries, it faces serious pollution control challenges that provide an immediate opportunity for technical exchanges with Rochester. It is served by the international airport of nearby Xian, likewise a former capital and home to the tombs of the famed terra cotta warriors.

 

Activities have included Xianyang high school students staying in local homes, webcam conferences and pen-pal relationships. Exchanges are being developed involving local pollution abatement professionals and museum collections.
