Greenbelt, MD (PRWEB) January 19, 2012
Debora Fajer-Smith, who heads the workers’ compensation practice group at Joseph, Greenwald & Laake, P.A., and is the President of the Maryland – Sister States Advisory Board under the Office of the Secretary State, recently returned from the organization’s mission trip to India led by Maryland Governor, Martin J. O’Malley.
The Maryland Sister States Program is the instrument for Maryland’s ten official sister state relationships established with states, regions or provinces in various countries around the world. The program oversees an array of international exchanges, promoting a balance of business, education and cultural interests. Ms. Fajer-Smith was appointed by Secretary of State in 2005 as Chair of the Maryland – Rio de Janeiro Committee. After serving under three Secretary of States, she was chosen as President of the Sister States Program. Under Ms. Fajer-Smith’s leadership, the program has flourished with innovations and new associations with international counterparts. Debora credits her success of the program to the volunteers who work to promote the cultural, educational, environmental, and economic ties with their sister states.
Governor Martin J. O’Malley led the business and economic development mission to India to promote investment, trade, and educational opportunities between the nation of India and the State of Maryland. India is home to one of the world’s largest fastest growing economies, and Maryland hopes to build on its strong presence in India and shared strengths in biotechnology, information technology (IT), aerospace, and defense.
“Visiting the nation of Gandhi was an exceptional experience as well as a successful opportunity fostering strong ties between Maryland and our new associations with Hyderabad and Mumbai,” said Ms. Fajer-Smith. “Raised in Prince George’s County, I was proud of our County’s participation and accomplishments in this mission.”
