[THE INVESTOR] The heads of the central banks of Korea, China and Japan are set to begin annual talks on Sept. 13, an official said.

Bank of Korea Gov. Lee Ju-yeol is scheduled to meet with his Chinese counterpart Zhou Xiaochuan and Japanese counterpart Haruhiko Kuroda in Songdo, a city west of Seoul, the official said.

The three neighbors have taken turns hosting a meeting of governors of their central banks since 2009 to promote cooperation and regional financial stability.

A key issue at the two-day meeting is whether Lee and Zhou will discuss a bilateral currency swap agreement that is set to expire next month.

Some Koreans are concerned that the diplomatic tension between Seoul and Beijing could jeopardize the currency swap agreement.
