Taoiseach receives bhsl Delegation, including Mayor of Pohang City, Korea
Another landmark day in the history of bhsl was reached on 10th July 2011, when a Delegation from the company was received at Government Buildings Dublin by An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, TD.
The Delegation included a very special guest of bhsl, Mr Seung-Ho Park, the Mayor of Pohang City in Korea. As part of the expansion of its business into Korea, bhsl has been building relations with key Government figures, with the assistance of Ireland’s Ambassador to Korea, HE Eamonn McKee. Pohang City is one of the regions of Korea keen to see bhsl locate in their area and Mayor Park was visiting Ireland as part of process of encouraging us to locate there. The call on An Taoiseach was, of course, one of the highlights of the Mayor’s visit. In his remarks of welcome, an Taoiseach outlined the importance that Ireland attaches to deepening its economic ties with Korea and that he very much welcomed the relationship building between Pohang and bhsl. He also had words of praise for the progress being made by bhsl as a young Irish company building a global business and that this kind of entrepreneurial spirit was a hallmark of Ireland’s journey of national recovery. The bhsl delegation also included members of the Board and executive of the company, all of whom were introduced to An Taoiseach.
