President Moon Jae-in says he and U.S. President Joe Biden will discuss strengthening COVID-19 cooperation during their summit this week.
The two leaders are scheduled to hold their first face-to-face on Friday in Washington.
A potential "vaccine swap" will likely be addressed as South Korean officials have sought U.S. help amid supply issues.
Moon told his aides during their weekly Monday meeting that he plans to use the talks as another opportunity for South Korea to move towards becoming a global hub for vaccine production.
The president also reaffirmed his goal of overcoming the coronavirus crisis during his last year in office.
Moon said he will devote all his energy to South Korea's economic recovery, which will lead to revitalization and improve people's livelihoods.
