SEOUL, Oct. 11 (Yonhap) -- South Korea and Japan will hold a meeting this week on ways to promote bilateral partnerships in the health care industry, a government ministry here said Tuesday.

The South Korean government has held the annual conference since 1993 to boost business and trade cooperation with the Japanese region of Kyushu. The neighboring countries take turns hosting the event.

This year's session of the Korea-Kyushu Economic Exchange Conference will be held in Fukuoka on Wednesday, according to the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy.

Under the theme of "The cooperation and future of South Korean and Japanese health care industries," it will focus on how to strengthen ties between the two sides in the field, added the ministry.

One-to-one business consultation meetings will be held as well for companies involved in the health care sector, as some South Korean firms plan to participate in the Eco-Techno 2016 Expo to open in Kyushu on Wednesday for a three-day run.
