The Bank of Korea says the nation's foreign reserves stood at about 454 billion U.S. dollars as of the end of June. It is down 2.35 billion dollars from a month earlier. Earlier this year, Korea's foreign reserves declined after reaching a record high of over 447 billion dollars in February. But it again set new records for two straight months in April and May. The central bank explained last month's drop is attributable to a stronger greenback as well as a fall in domestic financial institutions' payment reserves.
Prices of farm produce, and livestock and marine products jumped more than ten percent in the first half of this year. According to Statistics Korea on Monday, the consumer price index for agricultural, livestock and fisheries products rose 12.6 percent year on year between January and June, posting a double-digit growth for the first time in ten years since 2011.
