With an estimated 25 sister city relationships already established on Maui, committee members debated the creation of yet another partnership overseas, this time with Goyang, South Korea.
Mayor Arakawa: As the US and Korea come closer in finalizing the free-trade agreement, the sister city relationship will improve opportunities for the next generation.
Under the agreement, Seo-gu Mayor Park Hwan-yong of Daejeon will join the Seo-gu delegation in promoting Maui County as a future leisure and business travel destination for the people of South Korea.
Maui Mayor Alan Arakawa travels to O’ahu this week to attend a Sister City Conference in Honolulu. The conference is a preliminary summit to the APEC Conference happening in Hawaii in November.
