SEOUL, Nov. 30 (Yonhap) -- South Korea and the United States will hold a high-level economic dialogue in Washington next month, a Seoul government official said Friday.

Seoul's Vice Foreign Minister Lee Tae-ho and Manisha Singh, U.S. assistant secretary of state for economic and business affairs, will lead the Senior Economic Dialogue (SED) next Friday. It will be the first such talks since the Moon Jae-in administration was launched in May last year.

The SED was first held in November 2015, a month after the two countries' summit agreement to launch it. The second and last meeting was held in January 2017.

A day before the meeting, Lee plans to attend an economic forum hosted by South Korea's embassy and the Korea Economic Institute. The forum will discuss the allies' cooperation in space, information technology and other areas.
