About Terengganu

HISTORY

Terengganu and Iowa became Sister States in 1987 through an agreement signed by Governor Terry Branstad of Iowa and Chief Minister Dato Seri Amar Di Raja of Terengganu. Over the years, there have been agriculture, education and arts exchanges.

 

The Terengganu relationship, one of Iowa's two sister states that identifies as a Muslim country, has been a wonderful resource and reason to hold two different conferences on Islam.
