Trump should make no mention of Libya in summit with Kim: ex-U.S. envoy

Elliott Advisors Ltd., a unit of U.S. activist hedge fund Elliott Management Corp., said Wednesday it holds more than US$1 billion worth of stocks in three major affiliates of Hyundai Motor Group, and requested greater efforts to improve corporate governance by the firms.Citing Hyundai's plan to streamline its complicated cross-shareholding structure through business spinoffs and mergers, Elliott Advisors welcomed the move as a first step towards an improved and more sustainable corporate structure."While this step is encouraging, more needs to be done to benefit the companies and stakeholders," Elliott said in a statement, calling for a detailed road map to further enhance the South Korean auto giant's governance structure.Last week, Hyundai Motor Group announced that auto parts supplier Hyundai Mobis Co. will spin off its domestic module and after-sales parts businesses and merge them with logistics affiliate Hyundai Glovis Co.

Top 10 pharmaceutical firms invested over 1 trillion won in R&D last year

Local pharmaceutical companies spent 1.02 trillion won (US$968.75 billion) in 2017 on research and development (R&D), an increase of approximately 3 percent from the year before, data showed Wednesday.Celltrion led the pack, allotting 227 billion won, equal to 23.92 percent of its sales. However, the total is down from 2016, when the company spent 264.7 billion won, or 39.47 percent of its sales. Company officials said commercialization of biosimilar products and cost differences according to the development phase of a new anti-flu drug were the reasons for the decrease.The data were compiled by business reports of drug and bio firms who ranked among top 10 in sales. The R&D level was measured by the amount spent in proportion to company sales.Hanmi Pharmaceutical came next, funneling 170.6 billion won, or 18.6 percent of its sales, to R&D. Dong-a ST came in third after investing 81.2 billion won, accounting for 14.6 percent of the sales.

Japan’s Abe strives to stay relevant in denuclearization talks

Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will meet US President Donald Trump this month, and the Japanese foreign minister will reportedly visit South Korea next week, as Japan struggles to remain relevant in the upcoming inter-Korean and North Korea-US talks. Abe will meet Trump from April 17-18 to discuss North Korea and trade ties at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Florida ahead of an inter-Korean summit scheduled for April 27 and planned talks between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un before the end of May.The White House confirmed the plan, saying Trump and Abe “will discuss the international campaign to maintain maximum pressure on North Korea.”

Korea’s mobile payments market grows in both offline, online

Over the past year or two, Park Ji-yoon, a 28-year-old office worker in Seoul, has gradually stopped carrying her wallet when going to most places, be it a convenience store, a restaurant or a bar.There is no need to do so, Park says, as she is an avid user of mobile payment services that allow her to make transactions using just her smartphone, both in the offline and online world.“At offline retailers, I just have to activate my mobile pay service on my smartphone and place the device next to a card reader. When shopping online, I simply enter a passcode or scan my fingerprint to make a purchase. It’s super convenient,” Park said.Park is just one of many South Koreans hailing the simplified mobile payments business, led by smartphone manufacturers like Samsung Electronics as well as internet platform providers like Naver and Kakao.

Is there a ‘third option’ for resolving US-NK nuclear standoff?

Ever since North Korea rattled the international community with nuclear and missile programs in the late 1990s, there have been two competing approaches to addressing Pyongyang’s relentless pursuit of nuclear ambition: incremental implementation and comprehensive denuclearization. While the previous negotiations took an “incremental approach” in which North Korea made limited nuclear concessions in return for limited benefits from the US, the Trump administration denounces it as a delaying tactic to buy time and seeks to resolve the nuclear issue in a “comprehensive manner.” South Korea’s Moon Jae-in administration, which is committed to playing a meditator role between Pyongyang and Washington, appears to believe there is a “third option” to meet both parties half way: incremental implementation for comprehensive denuclearization.

The case for fewer babies

Korea's falling birthrate poses grave challenges for the future, from a shrinking labor force to rising healthcare costs. There is certainly much to worry about.But is having fewer or no babies at all also bad for individual members of society? Not really, according to Ronald Demos Lee, a professor of demography and economics at the University of California, Berkeley."The economic benefits of a low fertility rate are less visible and largely private, while the public costs of it, such as pensions and healthcare, are all very visible so they get much attention," Lee told The Korea Times.According to his 2014 research paper, "Is Low Fertility Really a Problem? Population Aging, Dependency and Consumption," moderately low fertility and population decline are good for individuals' living standards.

Woman wounds three at YouTube headquarters in California, then kills herself

A woman opened fire at YouTube's headquarters near San Francisco on Tuesday, wounding three people before taking her own life as employees of the Silicon Valley technology company fled into the surrounding streets, authorities said.Police did not release any further information on the suspect or her motives for the shooting rampage at YouTube, a video sharing service owned by Alphabet Inc's Google.MSNBC reported that police believe a woman in her 30s approached an outdoor patio and dining area on the campus around lunchtime and began to fire, before turning the gun on herself.Senior law enforcement officials believe the motive behind the shooting stemmed from a domestic dispute, MSNBC and other media reported. There had no known connection to terrorism, a U.S. government security official told Reuters.

US threatens Korea's forex sovereignty

Amid concern the country will "lose sovereignty" in its foreign exchange market operations following an agreement with the United States to improve transparency, the Korean won is rapidly strengthening against the U.S. dollar, threatening the profitability of exporters. While the government says it will have no problem controlling foreign exchange fluctuations, analysts say the agreement is likely to be a shackleThe Korean won closed at 1,054.2 won per dollar, Tuesday, the lowest rate in more than three years. On top of the lessening geopolitical tension ahead of a summit with North Korea, the announcement that the country is negotiating with the United States to improve the transparency of its foreign exchange "smoothing" is pulling down the won/dollar rate.

China Scrambles to Regain Lead in N.Korea Negotiation

Chinese President Xi Jinping is trying to push his way back to the front in negotiations about North Korea's nuclear weapons.Xi swiftly invited North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to Beijing when an inter-Korean summit and a U.S.-North Korea summit suddenly appeared on the horizon. China is the first foreign country that the reclusive North Korean leader has visited since taking power.In the meantime, U.S.-China relations are chilling rapidly. U.S. President Donald Trump has opted to warm up to Taiwan, signing a bill that permits officials of both sides to travel to each other's country. But by inviting Kim, China has tried to show that the North Korean issue cannot be resolved without its cooperation.

'Mastermind of Cheonan Sinking' Says Sorry to S.Korean Reporters

The head of North Korea's United Front Department on Monday identified himself as "what South Koreans are calling the mastermind of the South Korean Navy corvette Cheonan sinking" in 2010.Kim Yong-chol was talking to South Korean reporters who were in Pyongyang to cover concerts by South Korean musicians there but had been kept out of the first performance on Sunday. In a hastily arranged meeting at the Koryo Hotel in Pyongyang, he apologized for keeping them cooped up in the lobby of the theatre where the performance was held. "It was wrong to restrict you from free media coverage and filming," Kim said. "Let me offer an apology or ask for your understanding." But he introduced himself as the "mastermind of the Cheonan sinking," apparently more in jest than in earnest.

Handsome Hunks Available for Rent as Tour Guides

Many fans arrive in Seoul hoping to see the streets of the capital crawling with the kind of sleekly styled young heartthrobs they love from soap operas or music videos but are disappointed by the drab reality.But some savvy entrepreneurs have launched a service that lets them down more gently by renting out handsome young tour guides whose hair and chins look nearly as good.It is called "Oh My Oppa" after the Korean word referring to an older brother or lover and used for stars, which is familiar to many from the global megahit "Gangnam Style." "Rent your very own 'oppa'" say the adverts.

Blue House suggests holding trilateral talks with US and North Korea following spring summits

Amid an ongoing debate over the “road map” for the Korean Peninsula’s denuclearization, the Blue House stated on Apr. 2 that an approach of holding trilateral talks with North Korea and the US prior to four-party talks with China would be “desirable.”“The proper sequence would be to have the inter-Korean summit first and North Korea and the US, which are parties [to the North Korean nuclear issue], followed by South-North-US, and South-North-US-China after that,” a key Blue House official said.“Things like declaring an end [to the Korean War] and signing a peace agreement will be possible once there has been an agreement on a broader framework with regard to denuclearization,” the official added.

Young generation learn a painful history

After lunch on Apr. 2, small groups of students filed into a pavilion pitched in front of the gymnasium at Jeju Girls’ High School. The pavilion contained a memorial altar for the Apr. 3 Uprising on Jeju Island, which the school had organized independently to mark the uprising’s 70th anniversary this year. Inside the tent is an explanation of the uprising and a literary exhibition complete with a “white stone monument” that the students made themselves.First-year students on the school’s Apr. 3 Day of Remembrance Committee came to school on Sunday, Apr. 1, the day before the event, to create the “white stone monument” by painting the wooden materials.“I took part to get a deeper understanding of the Apr. 3 Uprising. While taking part in this activity, I’ve come to think that peace and human rights are even more important,” said Kim Hyeon-ju, 17.

Former investigator taken into court custody in perjury case involving Zainichi Korean

Hon. Judge Lee Seong-eun: The charge is false testimony, but in its essence this is not a case that can be limited to perjury. There are too many people who do remember for you to say that you “don’t recall” [the torture]. You appear to need more time to offer an apology.It’s been a very difficult process, and the defendant must defend himself throughout the length of the trial. In recognition of the risk of flight and destruction of evidence, I have decided to enforce an arrest warrant. I imagine that the victims have had tens of thousands of times more difficult a time than the defendant. I also feel that with his memory, the defendant may be the key to helping the victims somehow escape their past suffering. Do you have anything you would like to say?

Moon’s minimum wage policy gains more detractors

President Moon Jae-in is determined to deliver on his campaign promise of raising the minimum wage to 10,000 won ($9.50) an hour by 2020, but this year’s record increase has left many workers and employers dismayed.After the government raised the minimum wage by more than 16 percent to 7,530 won at the start of January, the outcomes have largely been unintended consequences: hiring cuts, business closures and job loss.Now, employees and employers alike are dreading future hikes to come.Last Friday, the minister of employment and labor asked the Minimum Wage Commission, which sets the amount, to begin deliberating on a minimum wage for next year. The commission has until June 29 to submit a proposal to the minister.

Australian envoy urges cooperation to resist protectionism

Amid growing international concerns about a possible trade war between the United States and China, Australia is ready to take a leading role in advocating free trade and resisting protectionism, its top envoy in Seoul said."It's a great big concern for Australia," Australian Ambassador to South Korea James Choi said in an interview with Aju News, calling for cooperation between Australia and South Korea, which depend on free trade.Protectionism will backfire because protectionist measures and raising tariffs only harm the countries that implement them, he said.Australia supports the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), also known as TPP11, that would eventually involve the United States, he said. "Our hope is that this protective sentiment in the United States especially is a temporary phenomenon."

GM Korea sales in Korea halve on year amid bankruptcy concerns

Sales of domestically made General Motors (GM) cars more than halved last month in Korea against a year-ago period amid jitters about the fate of the producer. GM Korea said on Monday it shipped total 41,260 cars in March, down 18.9 percent from a year ago. Sales in the Korean market plunged 57.6 percent on year to 6,272 units last month, and outbound shipments fell 3 percent to 34,988 units, it said. GM Korea’s combined sales in January to March period declined 15.8 percent on year to 120,386 units. The fate of GM Korea is in limbo as the management and union failed to settle collective bargaining terms by March 31 deadline, reducing the likelihood that the Detroit-based automaker could ready self-rescue outline to submit to the Korean authorities and state-run Korea Development Bank by April 20 for tax reprieve and financial aid for new investments. GM, which holds 77 percent in GM Korea (formerly Daewoo Motor), warned that it won’t extend maturities on the loans the headquarters lent to the Korean unit and inevitably will file for bankruptcy if the union does not agree to streamlining outline by then.
