Ricky and Yun Tae-hee, Director of Economic Development for Daejeon City
Last month, BMC Partner and Chairman of the
McAllen Economic Development Corporation,
Ricky Longoria, CPA, CFE, visited South Korea in an effort to promote
economic development in both the Valley and South Korea.
During the trip, which lasted from Mach 29 to April 3, McAllen EDC met with upwards of
30 Korean CEOs, hoping to attract Korean investment to McAllen and perhaps aid South
Texas companies in expanding business to Korea.
A highlight of the trip included the signing of a "memorandum of understanding for
economic and industrial cooperation" by Ricky and Yun Tae-hee, the Director of
Economic Development for Daejeon City. "Now I see why MEDC has been coming to South
Korea for the last 27 years," noted Ricky, "the friendships, the bond, the business
exchange and potential is extreme... it's time we take action!"
