SEOUL, Oct. 11 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's stock exchange said Tuesday it will host an international forum on exchange traded funds (ETFs) this week.

The 7th Global ETF Conference to be held in Seoul on Thursday is intended to explore ways to promote the development of Asian ETF markets and the "globalization" of South Korea's ETF market, the Korea Exchange (KRX) said.

The event, themed "New normal era and the fourth industrial revolution: ETF market's growth strategy," is expected to draw more than 500 participants, including representatives from the Japanese, Taiwanese, Hong Kong, Indian and other foreign bourses, as well as overseas stock index firms.

Those hoping to attend the forum need to submit applications via a related website (etfs.krx.co.kr).
