During her first overseas trip of the year which takes her to India, President Park Geun-hye is said to be planning on helping Korea break into the Indian nuclear business market.
This according to AFP, which also cites India's foreign ministry spokesman as saying New Delhi will have to first* have its atomic energy department consolidate the two countries' civilian nuclear program before making more developments.
Korea and India signed a civil nuclear cooperation agreement in 2011, after which Seoul has been looking to biuld nuclear power plants in Asia's third largest economy.
President Park will sit down with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday, local time where the two leaders are expected to expand ties on a wide range of issues including economy and science technology.
The president will then head to Switzerland for a state visit on Saturday where she will attend the World Economic Forum in Davos and give a keynote speech on the creative economy and entrepreneurship.
