SEOUL, Oct. 6 (Yonhap) -- President Park Geun-hye on Thursday visited a local job fair, in her latest move to promote her employment agenda and highlight the role of startups and small enterprises to help address young people find work.

The chief executive plans to offer her encouragement to young job seekers and recruiters during her visit to the job fair at the Convention and Exhibition Center in southern Seoul, her office Cheong Wa Dae said.

Set up by some 352 startups and small firms, the job fair aims to recruit some 1,200 people. Organizers expect some 10,000 job seekers to attend the one-day event.
