Governor Larry Hogan, Maryland Commerce Hold Signing Ceremony With Midlands Engine

June 21st, 2017 by WCBC Radio

Governor Larry Hogan today joined the Maryland Department of Commerce and Midlands Engine for a ceremony during which a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed to strengthen the relationship between Maryland, the center of research and innovation in cybersecurity in the United States, and the Midlands region, a premier cybersecurity cluster in the United Kingdom. The agreement was signed by Maryland Commerce Secretary Mike Gill and Sir John Peace, chairman of the Midlands Engine initiative, in London during the governor’s trade mission. 

The MOU is designed to promote economic development, assist cybersecurity companies in Maryland and the Midlands, and attract investments in each. As part of the agreement, an exchange program will be developed, by which U.K. cyber companies will visit Maryland to explore the U.S. market and to establish or increase a presence in the U.S., and Maryland cyber companies will visit the Midlands region for similar purposes.
