    U.S. President Joe Biden is expected to visit a Samsung semiconductor plant and the demilitarized zone when he visits Korea on Friday and Saturday.

    Biden is in favor of restructuring the global chip supply chain with focus on American allies, and Korea is a major partner. He will be shown around the Samsung plant by Samsung chief Lee Jae-yong and is accompanied on his trip by Cristiano Amon, the CEO of America's leading wireless tech company Qualcomm.

    The visit to the DMZ, accompanied by President Yoon Suk-yeol, will be confirmed at the last minute for security reasons.
