Foreign delegates from the Group of 20 plan to visit the inter-Korean Gaeseong industrial complex on Thursday.

While the officials are visiting South Korea to participate in the G20 Seoul Conference, the North recently allowed their visit, which was arranged by the Ministry of Unification, officials said.

According to the Finance Ministry of South Korea, 31 figures will visit, including 15 senior finance ministry officials from 14 countries such as France, Luxembourg, Switzerland and the U.K.

The delegate plans to look around the manufacturing facilities in Gaeseong and hold talks with South Korean companies operating in the complex.

The government said it arranged the event in a bid to raise awareness from the international community on the ongoing inter-Korean businesses.
