Fort Bend County officials announced the signing of a second memorandum of understanding with Chinese officials.
County and business leaders from Fort Bend County recently welcomed delegates from the city of Foshan, Chancheng District, China, to the Gulf Coast region and Greater Houston area to sign a second memorandum of understanding between the two communities.

"Fort Bend leaders know the importance of strengthening international connections to further support economic development in our county," said Jeff Wiley, president and CEO of the Greater Fort Bend Economic Development Council, in a press release. "Chancheng District shares many of the characteristics of Fort Bend, including significant population growth, business growth, substantial infrastructure challenges sufficient to sustain quality growth and a keen focus on education, medical and cultural amenities."
