South Korea's central bank said Friday that it will not let down its guard during the five-day Lunar New Year holiday, amid lingering financial uncertainties.
The Bank of Korea (BOK) said rising uncertainties in global financial markets may affect the South Korean market, which is scheduled to be closed through Wednesday.
It will run a round-the-clock monitoring system to check the movements of global financial markets next week so as to maintain resilience against fallout from any financial jitters overseas.
On last day of the holiday, the BOK will have a staff meeting chaired by Gov. Lee Ju-yeol to review data and developments over the cited period.
