President Park Geun-hye embarked on a nine-day trip to the Persian Gulf on Sunday, her first overseas trip of the year. In Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Qatar, Park will seek cooperation with the region in areas that are considered new growth engines such as health, medicine and IT.
She is accompanied by the biggest business delegation of its kind, with more than 100 Korean companies jostling to secure projects in the region. Park will also use the opportunity to garner support for her North Korea and unification policies.
