Mr. Moon will kick off discussions on growth and regional cooperation with leaders of 20 other major economies in the region that include the U.S., China, Japan, and Russia.

There are a number of group discussions and multilateral summit talks lined up throughout the next two days, but global leaders usually use the venue to meet one-on-one on the margins of the summit.

And, what we're learning just now is that the much-anticipated South Korea, China bilateral summit will take place some time tomorrow afternoon here in Danang.
It'll be interesting to see how Presidents Moon and Xi Jinping come face-to-face for candid talks for the first time since the two countries decided to end an over a year long diplomatic tensions over the deployment of U.S. missile defense system, THAAD in South Korea. So, definitely something to keep an eye on as most certainly how bilateral relations between South Korea and China goes will contribute to other things in the region, including North Korea."

Mr. Moon is due to hold a series of bilateral talks with other global leaders on the sidelines of the main APEC events starting with a meeting with his Vietnamese counterpart tomorrow morning here in Danang before heading to Manila on Sunday for the East Asia Summit and an annual regional forum involving the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations and the leaders of South Korea, Japan and China.
