PM to meet LG Group chief to discuss youth job creation

SEOUL-- Prime Minister Kim Boo-kyum will meet LG Group Chairman Koo Kwang-mo next week to discuss job creation for youths, officials here said Tuesday.

Kim plans to visit LG Science Park, the conglomerate's research complex, in Seoul on Oct. 21 and sign a partnership with LG for the government's youth job and education support project named Youth Hope ON, his office said.

Koo, who leads South Korea's fourth-largest business group, is expected to accompany Kim during the visit.

Under the project, the government provides expense for fostering young talents, while a company offers education programs. South Korea's major conglomerates Samsung and SK are already participating in the project.

Last month, Kim met Samsung Group leader Lee Jae-yong for the government's youth job creation project.
