DRESDEN, Germany, April 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
A delegation from the metropolitan city of Daejeon, South Korea, led by Mayor Kwon Sun-Taik, is visiting the city of Dresden for an official visit; and in a solemn ceremony, Mayor Kwon Sun-Taik of Daejeon and Dresden's Deputy Mayor Dirk Hilbert will sign a cooperation agreement. For the next two years, the agreement will function as the foundation for a collaboration between the two municipalities that establishes them as "twin" cities in 2018.
The Agreement includes mutual support for delegation visits and participation in trade fairs and conferences in both cities. In addition, Daejeon and Dresden aim to strengthen cooperation between small-and-medium-sized businesses by providing contacts. Dresden has a strong interest in collaborating with Daejeon's research institutes.
Dresden is not only Europe's most important microelectronics location, the city is home to many innovative small-and-medium-sized enterprises active in the high-tech sector including information technology, software development, machine-and-systems engineering, and biotechnology for the pharmaceutical industry. Dresden University of Technology (TU Dresden) is one of Germany's elite universities. In addition, eleven institutes and research facilities as well as the Fraunhofer Society enhance Dresden's research landscape.
A particular goal of Daejeon is to learn more about Dresden's tram and urban rail system. For this reason, organizers have planned a workshop with urban transport planners and Dresden Verkehrsbetriebe (DVB) that will focus on the planning and operation praxis of the Dresden public transportation network.
