South Korea and the United States have established a senior-level expert group to follow up on their summit deal on their "vaccine partnership."
The task force held its first session via video link Wednesday evening with government officials of the two sides in attendance, Cheong Wa Dae said in a press release.
Dozens of representatives from the White House, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation, as well as 13 South Korean officials from Cheong Wa Dae and other government offices were among the participants.
They mainly discussed vaccine production, expansion of raw materials, research and development, and cooperation in training human resources.
President Moon Jae-in and his President Joe Biden agreed during their summit in May to establish a "comprehensive KORUS Global Vaccine Partnership," to strengthen joint response capabilities for infectious disease.
The leaders described South Korea and the U.S. as "critical allies in the COVID-19 pandemic."
