Door County's sister city of Jingdezhen, China will be well represented around the peninsula this summer. More students from Jingdezhen will be coming here under the J-1 cultural visa program. They'll help Door County businesses through the busy summer tourism season. Door County Corporation Counsel Grant Thomas, who works with the sister city program, believes the Chinese student workers will share something in common with their American counterparts who are unfamiliar with Door County.
Door County will serve as a classroom for the Jingdezhen students who'll get a crash course in American culture and more.
In addition to students, Door County will host local leaders and dignitaries from Jingdezhen in June.
