Taean County signs friendly relationship pact with Japan's Shirahama
According to Yonhap News, 


(TAEAN=Yonhap News) The town of Taean on South Korea's west coast signed a friendly relationship pact with the western Japanese town of Shirahama on Tuesday to promote cooperation on the economy and culture, the Taean municipality said.

The deal was signed by Taean chief Han Sang-ki and Shirahama head Makoto Itani.

In May last year, a delegation from Shirahama, a hot spa resort in the western Japanese prefecture of the same name, visited Taean to discuss ways to promote exchanges.

Taean has pushed ahead with a project to strengthen its exchanges with coastal towns in Japan and China as part of its efforts to achieve regional development. In October last year, Taean signed a similar pact with Penglai, a coastal city in Shandong Province, northeastern China.

Han said Taean will expand overseas exchanges to promote international tourism, expressing the hope it will emerge as a major global town on South Korea's western coast.
