"The events are composed of discussions on major international issues such as the economy, regional cooperation and security in a multilateral setting."
Park's first stop will be in Turkey where she will attend the G20 summit to coordinate policies with her counterparts. Under theme of inclusive and robust growth, the summit will be held on Sunday and Monday.
Moving to Manila, Park will attend the APEC summit, where she is expected to propose approaches for regional growth based on South Korea's development experience, such as supporting small and medium companies.
From November 21, she will attend the ASEAN Plus Three (APT), which includes South Korea, China and Japan, the East Asia Summit and the South Korea-ASEAN summit in Kuala Lumpur.
The presidential office said it expects that Park's recent summits with Washington, Beijing and Tokyo as well as her attendance at the multilateral forums will help advance Seoul's diplomacy.
Amid talk that another meeting between Park and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe could be held on the sidelines of the forums, the top office said the schedule for bilateral summits has yet to be determined.
