South Korea business executives are expected to accompany President Moon Jae-in on a trip to Pyongyang next week to explore potential deals going forward, corporate sources said Monday.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in is scheduled to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Pyongyang from Sept. 18-20. The two have already met twice this year, leading to eased tensions on the Korean Peninsula.
Moon's chief of staff Im Jong-seok urged business leaders to join Moon's trip to the North. Im currently heads the summit preparation committee.
