The disgraced former managing director of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, will visit Korea on Oct. 30. Strauss-Kahn resigned from his post amid a sexual assault scandal and faces pimping charges in France.
In Korea, he will attend an international conference marking the 20th anniversary of the Institute for Global Economics, the institute said Tuesday.
Strauss-Kahn is expected to deliver a speech on the global economy and global governance. Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs Hyun Oh-seok will also address the gathering.
Strauss-Kahn had once been considered a strong favorite for the French presidency but resigned from his IMF post in 2011 after he was arrested and charged with the sexual assault of a housekeeper at a hotel in New York. He has also been charged in connection with a prostitution ring in the northern French city of Lille.
