Jeong In-Soo, the chief executive officer of TONGYANG Online, said in the ceremony, "Its an honor for TONGYANG Online to have this chance to work with AGA. I sincerely hope TONGYANG Online and AGA lead the globalization through cooperation."

 

AGA also has great expectations for this MOU. It is believed that there are one and half million of go players in the United States, and that about fifty to seventy go tournaments take place in all over the countries every year. But despite of the United States high interest of go, its not easy to raise go culture to the next level because of having no pro-go system like Korea, Japan, China and Taiwan. So AGA expects this MOU will play a great role to tackle all the obstacles.

 

Andrew Okun, the chairman of the board of AGA, awarded AGA's plaque of appreciation to TONGYANG Online saying that "I really appreciate of TONGYANG Online for the tournament. I expect this MOU will boost development of go in the United States and get go more popular across the world."
