South Korea Inc. Joins Park on China Visit to Reshape Ties (Bloomberg, June 27, 2013)

President Park Geun Hye arrived in Beijing today with the biggest-ever business delegation to join a South Korean leader’s state visit, signaling the importance she puts on China in boosting her nation’s economic fortunes.

Park will be joined by 71 executives, including Hyundai Motor Co. Chairman Chung Mong Koo, as her nation turns to its biggest trading partner and the world’s second biggest economy to spur growth that fell in 2012 to the slowest pace since 2009.

The four-day visit is a chance for Park, elected to a single five-year term in December, to pin down a free-trade deal as conglomerates such as Hyundai and Samsung Group (005930) look to tap China’s growing consumer class. Expanding trade ties may be crucial for Park to deliver on promises to boost employment to 70 percent by 2017 from 64.2 percent. Bloomberg
