He is scheduled to deliver a speech on South Korea's financial system and efforts to effectively handle risks from Brexit, a policy shift under the new U.S. government, the U.S. interest rate hikes and other uncertainties, the FSC said.
Jeong will propose how emerging countries will be able to secure foreign exchange liquidity and bolster economic fundamentals, as they try to cope with potential capital outflow and depreciation of their currencies, it added.
Co-organized by the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, the conference will open under the theme of "Asia: Driving Change, Innovation and Connectivity." (Yonhap)
