Korean Consul General Moon Duk-ho was honored today by the Metropolitan King County Council on May 19, receiving a certificate of recognition from the Council.

There are over 60,000 Korean Americans living in Washington state, according to the Council, half of whom live in King County.  Washington’s strategic location on the Pacific Rim makes Korea the state’s fourth largest trading partner.

“King County has developed a special relationship based on strong economic, social, and cultural ties, through times of peace and war,” said Councilmember Pete von Reichbauer, the author of the recognition. “We support the efforts in continuing to build strong bridges between the Republic of Korea and King County.”

The council also recognized the contributions of King County’s Korean American community. (end)
