South Korea August exports add for 10th month

July exports to the United States and China rallied 7% and 6.6% respectively against 2016. By the way, China appears to be South Korea's leading trade partner.

As for shipments to the EU, they demonstrated a 10.2% surge.

The same survey states that August’s year-on-year inflation was believed to hit 2.2%, intact from July.
