ROK logs US$2.4 billion trade surplus with Vietnam in July

VOV.VN - The Republic of Korea trade surplus remained in the black for the 66th month in a row in July amid brisk exports, the country’s customs data showed on Tuesday, August 15, reported The Korean Herald.

Asia's fourth-largest economy has consistently posted a monthly trade surplus since February 2012.

It logged US$6.7 billion in trade surplus with Southeast Asian countries in July, including a surplus with Vietnam at US$2.4 billion, while it posted an excess of US$3 billion in trade with China, its largest trading partner.

The country's exports have been on a roll since November last year, said The Korean Herald, on the back of growing overseas demand for semiconductors, petrochemical products and vehicles.
