Poongsan Corp. Chairman Ryu Jin will visit the funeral hall of the 41st U.S. President George Herbert Walker Bush, who passed away on April 30 (local time), the Money Today reported on Dec. 3.

"Chairman Ryu will attend the funeral of the late U.S. President Bush, which will be held in the U.S., and will pay respects," said a Poongsan official. The official added that Ryu`s visit to the U.S. was not specifically identified. Former President Bush died around 10 p.m. on Nov. 30 at his home in Houston, Texas at 94.

For a long time, Ryu has been carrying on steady exchanges with the Bush family, including the father Bush and the son Bush, the 43rd President of the United States. The relationship between Poongsan and the U.S. military & Republican figures started from Ryu's father, Chairman Ryu Chan-woo who knitted the bonds with them through the defense industry.

He has arranged the visit of former President Bush to Korea several times. Bush gave a special lecture at Poongsan High School in November 2005. Poongsan High School was founded by the Byeongsan Educational Foundation, which is headed by Chairman Ryu.

Chairman Ryu also attended the funeral of Barbara Bush, who passed away in April. Roh Hye-kyung, the wife of Chairman Ryu and daughter of former Prime Minister Roh Shin-young, is also known to be acquainted with Barbara, according to the media.
