Park Geun-Hye's China visit aims to strengthen trade ties

South Korea's President Park Geun-Hye starts her four-day visit to China on Thursday.

It will be her second overseas trip since taking office more than three months ago, and a large delegation of business leaders is expected to accompany her.

The intention is to strengthen economic ties between the two countries.

China is South Korea's largest trading partner, and the two countries are also in the midst of free trade talks with the next round expected to be held in July.

The BBC's Lucy Williamson has more from Seoul.
