To kick off his economic development mission to Korea and Japan, Governor Larry Hogan was joined today by Governor Oh Young-hun of Jeju Province in the Republic of Korea to sign an agreement of friendship and cooperation that strengthens bilateral ties between the two regions. Through the new strategic partnership, the State of Maryland and Jeju will pursue mutually beneficial cooperation in the areas of international commerce, economic development, carbon neutrality, agriculture, the arts and culture, tourism, and education.

“I have always believed in the importance of looking outside of Maryland’s borders to build productive and mutually beneficial international partnerships,” said Governor Hogan. “I can think of no stronger ally than the Republic of Korea, and no better place to continue building those new partnerships than right here in Jeju Province.”
