All News 09:08 June 14, 2017

SEOUL, June 14 (Yonhap) -- President Moon Jae-in will hold a meeting with the chiefs of major provincial governments Wednesday, his office said, in what appears to be a preparatory step to deliver on his election pledge to institute a dialogue mechanism with them.

The meeting will involve 17 provincial leaders and top central government officials, including Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon, Deputy Prime Minister Kim Dong-yeon, Interior Minister Hong Yun-sik and presidential chief of staff Im Jong-seok.

On the campaign trail, Moon pledged to create a "second Cabinet meeting" that involves the heads of major provincial governments, in a bid to bolster cooperation with the local administrations. The installation of the dialogue apparatus requires a legal revision, officials said.
