International Reserves in Korea

Korea International Reserves | Economic News & Forecasts

Korea - International Reserves

Economic growth was likely stable in the third quarter, on the heels of Q2’s slight acceleration following a near one-decade weak expansion in Q1. Domestic demand buttressed the economy in Q3, likely benefiting from monetary and fiscal stimulus which has supported business confidence and activity in recent months. Retail sales rebounded robustly in annual terms in August, while the unemployment rate fell to its lowest level since November 2013 in the same month, boding well for household spending in the quarter. That said, the U.S.-China trade spat and political rifts with Japan continue to hamper exports. Industrial production contracted notably in annual terms in August on declining manufacturing output, while merchandise exports decreased at a sharper pace in Q3.
