Chinese Friendship Agreement

The village of Rockport was the site of the Chinese Friendship Agreement between the 1000 Islands Canada and 1000 Islands Lake in China.

The Township of Leeds and the Thousand Islands Mayor, Frank Kinsella and Chun’an County, China’s Mayor Ling Zhifeng signed the agreement onboard a Rockport Boat Line cruise boat on September 13, 2009.

The agreement states, it will establish mutual visits between the two local governments, share resources between travel agencies and tourism enterprises in the two1000 Islands, inviting their local media and linking web sites to create awareness of their counterparts in local markets.

Friendship trees were planted in the Front St. Garden in Rockport. A Maple tree was planted for Canada and a Ginkgo tree for China. A plaque commemorating the event was placed on a large rock between the trees. The Friendship between the two countries will grow like the trees and flowers planted in the same garden.
