SEOUL, March 29 (Yonhap) -- The ruling party, government and presidential office will meet Saturday in an effort to boost their cooperation over the new administration's policies and projects, the presidential spokesman said.

A total of 72 senior officials from the Saenuri Party, government offices and the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae will hold a workshop at a training center for civil servants in Gwacheon, just south of Seoul, spokesman Yoon Chang-jung said in a press briefing.

Among the participants are 37 members of the Saenuri Party, including its chief and floor leader, Prime Minister Chung Hong-won, 15 ministers and two vice ministers, as well as presidential chief of staff Huh Tae-yeol and all nine senior presidential secretaries, Yoon said.

"The meeting was planned in order to help the ruling party, government and presidential office form a consensus on the Park Geun-hye administration's philosophy and tasks," he said.

The senior presidential secretary for administrative planning will explain the government's philosophy and tasks, while the finance and health ministers will each explain the current economic situation and plans to provide tailored welfare services.

The participants will also discuss plans to introduce bills backing up the president's campaign pledges during April's extra parliamentary session, the spokesman said.
