O'Malley signs MOU with mayor of Seoul
The two signed a memorandum of understanding, a largely ceremonial document. Se-hoon said he it will help build a "strong foundation" between Maryland and his Asian mega-city (pop. 10 million).
O'Malley also officially announced his upcoming trip to the pacific rim, which will include a stop in Seoul. The Sun's Andrea Walker reported that trip on the front page of today's paper.
The two men signed the agreement in a room on the second floor of the State House, and were pepped with questions afterward by Korean and American journalists.
Se-hoon described the people of Seoul as "very ambitious" and he during his remarks he repeated a theme that O'Malley favors: Government investment in technology.
Another thing the two men have in common: Both have ambitions beyond their current office. Mayor Se-hoon is a presidential candidate for next year's elections.
