Korean Delegation Travels West In Search Of Gold

 

Jim Coleman (Right-Center), EDC President & CEO with Business Delegation from Cheonan City. Largo, MD - On Tuesday, the Prince George's County Economic Development Corporation (EDC) welcomed a delegation of investors from Cheonan City, Korea. The delegation is exploring investment and business opportunities in the United States and the Greater Washington Metro Area in particular. EDC 'Chief Excitement Officer', Jim Coleman, was very happy to welcome the delegation and to share with them just how great Prince George's County is for business.
 
"Prince George's County is bursting at the seams with opportunity," said Coleman. "We are always looking for and open to ways to act on the Friendship Agreement that we made with Cheonan City. In Prince George's County, there are over $10 billion in major development projects in the pipeline that are of high interest to strong investors and our friends from Cheonan City are a great fit. We are very happy to share the value proposition for the entire County and look forward to our collaborative efforts to create more jobs!"
 
This visit was a furtherance of the relationship between Prince George's County and Cheonan City, which was forged by the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding in October, 2016. This MOU opened the intercontinental highways between the two jurisdictions for international trade and business opportunities.
 
Prince George's County, right outside of the Nations Capital, is experiencing enormous economic growth. By comparison, Cheonan City, often called the "core city of the nation", is the gateway to the area around Seoul. Both regions' economies are fueled in large part, by the tech industry and are home to some of the most successful companies in their respective countries. Like business owners in Prince George's County, business men and women in Cheonan City are excited to explore new possibilities.
 
"We are grateful to get an exclusive look at Prince George's County's business environment," said Im Hongsoon, Leader of Cheonan City Delegation. "Cheonan City and Prince George's County have so much in common as far as doing business is concerned. Our investors and business owners look forward to furthering relationships with this great County!"
