1- So considering that this is the biggest international conference that South Korea hosts under the Moon Jae-in administration, many eyes are on how the summit will help to boost cooperation between South Korea and ASEAN nations.
What can we expect in that regards?

2- Right now, the ASEAN-Korea culture innovation summit is ongoing, how do we expect cultural exchanges and contents between ASEAN and South Korea to be the future growth engine?

3- Meanwhile, North Korea declined President Moon Jae-in's invitation to the special summit saying that it hopes Seoul would understand North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's decision to not visit Busan.
But all 10 ASEAN countries have diplomatic relations with North Korea, so what can we expect from the summit in regards to the ongoing peace process on the Korean Peninsula?

4- And on Wednesday, the first Mekong-Korea summit is to take place here in Busan with South Korea hoping that this year's meeting will serve as an opportunity to evaluate the 10 years of Mekong-Korea relations.
