The meeting will take place between December 10 and 12 in Busan city.

Ten ASEAN leaders and the South Korean counterpart will discuss the progress of their economic and peace cooperation under the strategic partnership scheme.

Thai government, meanwhile, is planning to revise rules and regulations concerning shipping in order to promote and facilitate trade within the region.

ASEAN countries and South Korea will also celebrate their 25th anniversary of friendship with a series of activities throughout the year.
