Both Fuzhou and Honolulu have long histories, great economic and cultural influence, and complementarities in many fields. Since the two cities signed the letter of intent in September 2019, the two cities have had close exchanges, and have donated anti-epidemic materials to each other at the beginning of COVID-19 outbreak in 2020.

Fuzhou is an important port city on the ancient Silk Road. Its economy has developed rapidly in recent years and it has established close economic and trade relations with many regions in the world.
