    After 5 years of promotion and hard work, the Carolina-China Council has successfully facilitated the establishment of a Sister State/Province relationship between North Carolina, USA and Hunan Province, China in October 2012.

Hoyal Upchurch memorial. Lt. Upchurch was a Flying Tigers pilot born in North Carolina and died in Guidong Hunan Province during World War II.
