SEOUL, March 2 (UPI) -- The Eighth Inter-Korean Economic Cooperation Promotion Committee began talks in Seoul Tuesday on long-standing bilateral interests between North and South Korea.

The officials are scheduled to discuss details of several ongoing cross-border projects in their first economic talks this year, the Korea Times reported.

This four-day round of inter-Korean talks are expected to focus on three major bilateral cooperation projects: the reconnection of two sets of cross-border railways and roads; the construction of an industrial park in Kaesong, North Korea; and a tourism project at scenic Mt. Kumgang.

The officials toured the LG Science Exhibition in Yoido, Seoul, and attended a banquet hosted by South Korea's Unification Minister Jeong Se-hyun, Monday.
