SEOUL, July 9 (Yonhap) -- The labor ministry on Monday said it will hold an annual job fair later this week to help young South Koreans find jobs in Southeast Asian countries.

The 2018 ASEAN job fair will be held in Busan on Thursday and in Seoul on Saturday, the ministry said. ASEAN is short for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.

Eight countries -- Singapore, the Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia and Laos -- will take part in the event to provide some 300 jobs, the ministry said.

The number of South Korean youngsters who found jobs in ASEAN nations via the annual job fair was 785 in 2015, 1,284 in 2016 and 1,355 last year.
