They will also talk about issues like infrastructure development and South Korea's Knowledge Sharing Program, initiated in 2004 to offer its growth experience and other expertise to other countries.

It is South Korea's first bilateral talks between finance authorities since the new Moon Jae-in government took office on May 10.
