At the presidential office, Park will hold talks with 19 members of Keidanren, the Japanese Business Federation, including its Chairman Sadayuki Sakakibara, presidential spokesman Jung Youn-kuk said.

"President Park plans to call for bolstering economic cooperation between the enterprises of the two countries," Jung told reporters.

The members of Keidanren are in Seoul to attend a meeting with their South Korean counterparts.

In December 2014, the chief executive held talks with some members of the Japanese business group to discuss ways to bolster two-way trade and mutual investment.
