Moon Jae-in will deliver his last New Year’s address as the South Korean President early next week, a senior official said on Thursday.
The New Year’s address will be delivered at 10 a.m. on Monday and Moon is expected to emphasise on the importance of national unity, Yonhap News Agency quoted the official as saying.
After delivering the speech for some 20 minutes, Moon will have a virtual New Year greeting with heads of the government, the judiciary and the National Assembly as well as senior politicians and business leaders, the official said.
Moon, whose single, five-year term ends in May, has vowed to do everything possible for a complete return to normal life from the Covid-19 pandemic and an economic recovery.
The country’s presidential election will take place on March 9, 2022.
