President Moon Jae-in was set to hold a special meeting with top government officials Tuesday to share his policy objectives and discuss ways to implement them, the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said.
The meeting will start at 2 p.m., involving ministers and vice ministers from all major government ministries. It is scheduled to end at 7 p.m. after dinner, according to Cheong Wa Dae officials.
It is largely aimed at discussing the government's main policy objectives for the year and ways to implement them, they said.
Normally, the president is briefed by each government ministry of its policy goals at the start of each year, but Moon had Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon receive such reports this year, apparently as part of efforts to delegate more power to the prime minister, one of his key election pledges.
The meeting will mark the first of its kind since Moon took office in May.
