Business Today with Dr. Kim Byoung-joo
So, President Park Geun-hye left for her European tour on Saturday and is now waking up to her second full day in Paris
The Korean leader's goal this time is to boost trade with the European Union and make inroads for Korean firms and people in the regional bloc, which holds a high potential for cooperation with President Park's creative economy drive.
President Park Geun-hye's eight day trip to France, the UK and Belgium - its implications and anticipated outcome of her tour for analysis, Dr. Kim Byoung-joo, head of KL&P Consulting and our regular commentator on this program joins me live in the studio.
Good afternoon to you, Dr. Kim.
First of all, we want to put the three destinations into context. Why were they chosen in this order?
During her visit to France, “culture” seems to be one of the key themes?
The state visit to the UK, this is the first for a Korean leader since late former President Roh Moo-hyun's visit there. What are we expecting this time around?
The last stop will be Brussels, where President Park will have the most to talk about because she will have to deal with the topics for the entire EU zone
Lastly, President Park’s remarks with the French media regarding her willingness for an inter-Korean summit. What is behind this?
