A total of 181 ambassadors, consul generals and other heads of diplomatic missions in foreign countries will participate in the five-day session that will open on Monday in Seoul.
Major programs include special lectures by Yoon Young-chan, senior presidential secretary for public communication, and Yoon Jong-won, senior presidential secretary for economic affairs.
