Former International Monetary Fund managing director Dominique Strauss-Kahn will be visiting South Korea next week to attend an economic forum, the organizing think tank said Tuesday.
The French economist is scheduled to appear at an economic forum to be hosted by the Institute for Global Economics on Oct. 30 and will give a speech on global economic trends and governance overall, the institute said.
His visit to Seoul is only to attend the conference, and he will return to Paris as soon as the forum ends, it added.
Strauss-Kahn made five trips to South Korea as the IMF chief in 2010 alone, the year Seoul hosted the Group of 20 meeting.
After resigning from his top post at the IMF in 2011 following sexual assault allegations, he served as an advisor to the Serbian government and a board member of the Russian Regional Development Bank.
Late last month, Strauss-Kahn joined Anatevka, a Luxembourg-based investment banking firm. (Yonhap News)
