Next trip for president is to Brunei, Indonesia

President Park Geun-hye will visit Indonesia and Brunei in early October to attend a series of international meetings, including a state visit with the Indonesian president.

According to the Blue House, Park will depart from the country on Oct. 6 to attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) meeting held in Bali, Indonesia, between Oct. 7 and 8.

On Oct. 8, she will fly to Brunei to attend three additional groups, the 16th Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) summit, the Asean+3 meeting and the 8th East Asia Summit.

Wrapping up her schedule in Brunei, she will return to Indonesia but this time to the capital of Jakarta on Oct. 10 for a meeting with Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, who invited her to pay a state visit. She is scheduled to stay there until her return to the country on Oct. 13.

At the APEC meeting, which has the theme “Towards Resilience and Growth: Reshaping Priorities for Global Economy,” Park is expected to discuss a wide range of issues with leaders of 21 countries, including APEC’s role in strengthening multilateral trade and balanced and sustainable development.

She will deliver a speech at a CEO Summit on the sidelines of the APEC meeting, where business executives discuss the global economy.

At the Asean+3 summit, in which South Korea, China, and Japan join the Asean nations, she will discuss previous achievements of that group.

In Brunei, she will meet with the leaders of the 10 Asean countries and discuss ways to boost the strategic partnership among them.
