S. Korea, China hold working-level talks on economic ties

SEOUL, South Korea and China held working-level talks in Seoul on Tuesday to discuss ways to boost their economic cooperation, officials here said.

The two sides discussed areas of mutual interest, including ways to create new momentum to expand trade and investment, and agreed to cooperate closely in building stable supply chains, according to Seoul's foreign ministry.

The 27th meeting for a "comprehensive review of bilateral economic cooperation" was represented by Kim Jin-dong, director-general for bilateral economic affairs at the foreign ministry, and his Chinese counterpart, Wang Liping.

Tuesday's meeting comes as South Korea has been making efforts to stabilize the supply of key material imports, especially after China suspended customs procedures for urea shipments to Seoul early this month.

South Korea and China have held such talks annually since 1993, according to the ministry.
