“The Fairfax County Economic Development Authority is very pleased to host these events to connect Korean companies with potential business partners in Fairfax County and in Northern Virginia,” said Victor Hoskins, president and CEO of the FCEDA.

“This region is an ideal entry-point in the United States for Korean companies interested for conducting business here,” Hoskins added. “Located on the eastern seaboard near the nation’s capital, Northern Virginia is the location of many U.S. and international cybersecurity companies and a wealth of business opportunities in the private and public sectors.” 

Focusing on the benefits of entering the U.S. market in dynamic Northern Virginia, the virtual forums will enable Korean cybersecurity companies with contacts and strategies to identify local prospects for potential partnerships. Additionally, U.S.-based cybersecurity companies will have the opportunity to reach out to prospects in Korea.
