According to reports, the members of the House had examined the one-of-a-kind resolution for declaring a development-based connection between California and Punjab.
It is pertinent to note that no member rejected the bill when moved for a vote.
The bill was passed during a formal visit by the Governor of Punjab, Chaudhry Sarwar, to the US State.
The governor also met members of the California parliament, including Rep. Jim Costa, during his visit.
In a statement, Sarwar expressed his pleasure in meeting with the members of the parliament and discussed “ways of further cooperation between Punjab and California” for agriculture and technology-related projects.
It is pertinent to note that a sister relationship is a formal announcement of compatibility between two regions, states, or nations.
The State of California, also known as the “Golden State”, currently has 28 officially acknowledged Sister-State relationships globally.
Due to the Sister-State recognitions, developments regarding social, economic, educational, and cultural exchanges are facilitated regularly.
