Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (left) and Mayor Oh Se-hoon of Seoul, South Korea, met at the Statehouse in Annapolis Thursday.

Gov. Martin O'Malley hosted a delegation from Seoul, South Korea, Thursday at the Statehouse in Annapolis. It included the city's mayor, Oh Se-Hoon. Both areas have a large number of biotechnology companies and research firms, and O'Malley believes Maryland businesses can expand their reach into Asia through South Korea's capital city, and vice versa.

"There is more research that goes on in Maryland on a per capita basis than in any other state in the country. And because of that research there's tremendous opportunities for commercialization," he says.

O'Malley, several members of his cabinet, as well as Maryland business and academic leaders will embark on a trade mission to China, South Korea, and Vietnam at the end of May.
