Located in the south of Russia, Stavropol shares many qualities with Iowa, including wonderful people. The idea for this relationship began with Governor Branstad’s vision back in September 1986. In May 1987, the Iowa/Stavropol pairing was announced, and by September 1987, there were more than 70 volunteers on the Stavropol committee in ISS.

In June 1988, Governor Branstad and Chairman Tarranov signed the agreement. Since then our relations have focused on a variety of fields such as educations, sports, business, business, agriculture, government, and economic development.
