Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairman Sharon Bulova and a delegation from Fairfax County are in Songpa-gu, Seoul, Korea, today for a Sister Jurisdiction Signing Ceremony.

A delegation from Songpa-gu, Seoul, Korea, signed a Memorandum of Understanding on a sisterhood relationship with Fairfax County on July 13 and was recognized that day at a Board of Supervisors meeting. 

“Our Board of Supervisors is excited about this partnership. We recognize that Fairfax County shares many of the same attributes as Songpa-gu and look forward to opportunities for collaborations and sharing best practices,” said Bulova.  “We also appreciate the opportunity to have a relationship with a part of the world that is the native home to so many of our residents.” 

Korean Americans are the largest and fastest growing segment of Fairfax County’s Asian-American population, numbering approximately 55,000. There are nearly 50 Korean-owned firms in Fairfax County, primarily in technology, biotechnology and media, in addition to many Korean-owned retail operations. The Fairfax County Economic Development Authority has an investment office in South Korea to assist Korean firms considering the U.S. and Fairfax County for business locations.

The delegation includes:

  • Daniel G. Storck, Fairfax County School Board, Mount Vernon District.
  • David J. Molchany, Fairfax County deputy county executive.
  • Barry Biggar, president and CEO, Visit Fairfax.
  • Christina Fullmer, senior staff aide, Chairman Bulova’s Office.

The trip is being funded by Songpa-gu, Seoul Korea.
