Rochester's partner city pays a visit

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Delegates from Rochester's partner city in Siheung South Korea stopped by for a visit.   They got in late Monday night and spent part of the day Tuesday touring the great city of Rochester .

They were welcomed by a group of Mayo Employees singing for them in the Gonda Building.  Earlier in the day they were talking about student exchanges between the two cities. Another topic that came up was the possibility of economic development between the two cities. Rochester Mayor Brede says its a right move to have our Siheung partners in town.

 "I think its just wonderful for us to learn more about other cultures and when you learn that you find out that we're all friends," says Mayor Brede.  Siheung City Mayor Yun-Sig Kim adds, "Hello Rochester. I'm the mayor of Siheung City, South Korea, Rochester is a pretty clean city."

The mayor of Siheung also said he was looking forward to seeing the youth and medical programs Rochester has to offer.
