International Reserves in Korea

Korea - International Reserves

The economy remains on shaky ground in the second quarter, following the sharp slowdown logged in Q1, as headwinds from the global tech downturn, a re-escalation in U.S.-China trade tensions and a weakening Chinese economy continue to drag on the external sector. This was reflected in a sharper contraction in merchandise exports in May, hampered by falling demand for semiconductors, while operating conditions deteriorated in the manufacturing sector in the same month. Moreover, consumer and business confidence were entrenched in pessimistic territory in May, which bodes poorly for domestic demand; fiscal stimulus should provide some support, however. At the same time South Korean stocks have fallen in recent weeks on concerns over the outlook for the memory chip market.
