Douglas Shire Sister Region

In 2016 the Douglas Shire Council announced they would start looking for a Sister City or Sister Region.

In 2017 there was no news on this yet but the 2017 - 2018 Operational Plan does show that the CEO Unit is going to spend six months of their time (and how much rate payers money) developing a Sister City Program.
One does wonder if this money would not be better spent on road maintenance or other high priorities....

While DSC was still looking, we had already found the most similar place on earth, Korea!

Like the Douglas Shire it has green, hilly countryside, mountains and coastal plains, plus a coastal fishing industry and sub-tropical islands, and they grow sugar cane.
Korea has a striking resemblance to the Douglas Shire, both geographical being similarly shaped and also having an ocean to the east, and in the stark contrasts of northern and southern parts.

The South is where the economy blooms, it has good infrastructure and all the modern world services such as power, water, mobile phone reception and broadband internet, people have the leaders the majority voted for, and everyone is well fed.

The North is run by a leadership whose first priority is to pursue and fulfill their own personal agenda, ignoring the fact that citizens go hungry and live in poverty.
Economic wellbeing, infrastructure and services for the population are lacking, and the people have a government not chosen by the majority.
Both North Korea and North Douglas have economic sanctions imposed on them by outsiders to stifle any progress.

The borders between North and South in both sister regions are hazardous with either land mines or man eating crocodiles, and the only way to get across the border is with a travel pass issued by the government (not that easy to get) or to pay a lot of money to the guards at the border crossing.

The contrasts in lifestyle, infrastructure, services and economy when you cross the border between North and South are simply amazing.
