Penjelasan :

Since the launch of the U.S.-Indonesia Comprehensive Partnership in 2010, discourse on the relation between the two countries has been focused mainly on government-to-government partnership. This attention overshadows other forms of cooperation that may help promoting partnership goals. One of these other forms of partnership is city-to-city partnership. City-to-city, also often called sister cities, partnership is a form of cooperative agreement made between towns or cities in geographically and politically distinct areas to promote cultural and commercial ties, and foster people-to-people connections. The US sister city program formally began in 1956  and among sister cities between Indonesia-U.S. is the Bogor - St. Louis sister city agreement. 

Between the two cities, multiple links have been established in both high- and low-level connections. Former United States Senator Christopher "Kit" Bond and World Trade Center St. Louis led a trade mission of ten companies and four universities to Indonesia in 2012, working in this partnership to establish connections both within the city of Bogor and on the bigger national scale. The partnership engages people in both cities on multiple sectors, including industry, business, tourism, and politics, however it has mainly focused on education and economic links. The sister-city program has provided a vehicle for these public-private partnerships.

The partnership offers few questions namely: What are the main benefits gained from city-to-city partnership? How do global city-to-city partnerships help growing cities manage local challenges and impact citizen welfare, business, and educational outlook? How can the private sector & academia work together on innovation and research in terms of economic and educational connections? By putting a spotlight on the St. Louis-Bogor City-to-City Partnership,  this Open Forum hopes to answer those questions.

Nowak, 2014 Eisenhower Fellow and Executive Director of World Trade Center St. Louis, Mauricio Amore, President Director of Monsanto Indonesia, Wully Wahyuni, Country Head of Novus Indonesia, Dr. Thomas L.
