Seoul (VNA) – Up to December 8, the Republic of Korea (RoK)’s exports have surpassed 400 billion USD, bringing the country’s total trade to over 800 billion USD.

The 400 billion-USD figure increases by 4000 times than that of the 100 million-USD-milestone gained by the country in 1964, said the Korea International Trade Association (KITA), who lit up a signboard at COEX trade centre in southern Seoul on December 8 to mark the event.

According to KITA, the RoK is exporting more than 8,500 items of goods to over 200 countries over the world. Key items include ships, telecommunication equipment, automobiles, petrochemical products, semi-conductors…

Even though overseas markets will shrink and competition for export will get fiercer next year amid the global economic slump, the RoK will weather the economic storm and find new opportunities in the crisis if the government and businesses work together, KBS quoted Knowledge Economy Minister Lee Yoon-ho as saying at the above ceremony.

Last year, the RoK’s trade turnover surpassed 700 billion USD, ranking 11th in the world. –
