S. Korea to up its financial burden for U.S. troops by 8.2 pct

South Korea signed a deal with the United States on Sunday to raise its contribution to the upkeep of American troops here by 8.2 percent this year.Top negotiators of the two sides inked the contract in Seoul, under which South Korea will pay 1.03 trillion won (US$890 million) for the operation of the 28,500-strong U.S. Forces Korea (USFK), up from 960 billion won in 2018. It was formally called a "preliminary signing," as domestic procedures, including parliamentary ratification in South Korea, are required. The U.S. government does not need congressional approval for the accord.

Parliamentary leaders head for U.S. for talks with Pelosi ahead of Trump-Kim summit

A group of parliamentary leaders, led by National Assembly Speaker Moon Hee-sang, left for the United States on Sunday for meetings with American congressional leaders ahead of a second summit between the leaders of the U.S. and North Korea. Moon and the heads of four rival political parties, including the ruling and opposition parties, flew to the U.S. for a weeklong trip aimed at parliamentary diplomacy with the U.S. in the run-up to the summit between President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un set for Feb. 27-28 in Hanoi, Vietnam. The delegation includes Lee Hae-chan, the chairman of the ruling Democratic Party; the Party for Democracy and Peace's Chairman Chung Dong-young; the Justice Party's Chairwoman Lee Jeong-mi; and Kim Kwan-young, the floor leader of the minor opposition Bareunmirae Party.

Biz heads want no more 'false hope' for Kaesong Industrial Complex

When Lee Jong-duk closed his plant in Qingdao, China, and moved it to an industrial park in North Korea's border town of Kaesong in 2008, he was full of hope and pride, believing he could contribute to deepening inter-Korean relations through business. Business was quite robust, with his underwear-making factory employing as many as 350 North Korean workers at one point. The high-quality and relatively cheap products also appealed to customers, and sales were at their highest point in years in 2015. It, however, hit an unexpected snag in early 2016, when the government abruptly shut down the park, ordering all South Korean businesspeople to leave Kaesong immediately. What appeared to be a short-term hiccup has turned three years this week with no clear signs for an end to the stalemate.

Leaders of S. Korea, US to Hold Discussions on Upcoming N. Korea-US Summit

President Moon Jae-in and U.S. President Donald Trump plan to hold discussions soon about Trump's upcoming meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un set for late this month in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi. Presidential spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom said during a news briefing Sunday that the two leaders are expected to speak by phone, adding the top office will announce details as soon as preparations are complete. The spokesman said the two nations will continue cooperation and communication at diverse levels, adding Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha will meet with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo soon for talks.

Prosecution to Indict Former Supreme Court Chief Monday

The prosecution said it will indict on Monday former Supreme Court Chief Justice Yang Sung-tae who is involved in a massive judicial power abuse scandal. Yang, who is under pre-indictment detention, is the first former chief of South Korea’s top court to have been arrested as a suspect and face a criminal trial. Yang is accused of instructing officials at the National Court Administration, the top court’s governing body, to interfere in high-profile trials in order to use them as leverage to lobby the office of then President Park Geun-hye to get her approval for the establishment of a separate court of appeals. The Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office is expected to indict two retired justices Park Byong-dae and Ko Young-han as well for their alleged involvement in the scandal.

IMF Chief Warns of Global 'Economic Storm'

The International Monetary Fund(IMF) has warned governments to gear up for a possible economic storm as growth falls short of expectations. According to AFP, IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde issued the warning on Sunday during the World Government Summit in Dubai, saying that the economy is growing more slowly than expected. Lagarde cited what she called "four clouds" as the main factors undermining the global economy and warned that a "storm" might strike. The risks include trade tensions and tariff escalations, financial tightening, uncertainty related to the outcome of Brexit and spillover impact and an accelerated slowdown of the Chinese economy.

U.S., N.K. to hold new round of pre-summit talks in Asian nation next week: Cheong Wa Dae

The United States and North Korea plan to hold a new round of talks in a third Asian nation next week to prepare for the second summit of their leaders, South Korea's presidential office said Sunday. President Moon Jae-in and U.S. President Donald Trump also plan to hold discussions soon about Trump's upcoming meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un set for Feb. 27-28 in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi, presidential spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom said. The two leaders are expected to speak by phone. "We are going to announce details as soon as preparations are complete," Kim said.

S. Korean sales-to-inventory ratio rising

Inventory of South Korean manufacturers has increased to its highest point in 10 years, data showed Monday, a likely sign of a dulled economy. Figures obtained from the Korea Center for International Finance and Statistics Korea put the inventory-to-sales ratio in December last year at 116 percent. The number is the highest since 122.9 percent in September 1998, when the country was struggling with the Asia-wide foreign exchange crisis. The ratio has been on the incline from late last year. After reaching 106.9 percent in October, it climbed to 111.7 percent in November.

Moon's approval rating rebounds to 50 pct level: poll

President Moon Jae-in's approval rating rose above 50 percent for the first time in nearly three months last week, a poll showed Monday, amid optimism about rapprochement on the Korean Peninsula. Moon's support came to 50.4 percent last week, up 1.6 percentage points from the previous week, according to a poll by Realmeter on 1,507 people across the country. The survey was conducted on Thursday and Friday. The approval rating rose to the 50 percent level for the first time since the third week of November when it hit 52 percent. The rebound appears to be affected by the government's efforts to revive the economy and news on a second summit between the United States and North Korea slated for later this month in Hanoi, the pollster said.

South Korea, US ink provisional defense cost-sharing pact

South Korea and the United States signed a provisional agreement Sunday on the sharing of costs to maintain US troops here, with South Korea raising its share by 8.2 percent. Seoul’s negotiator, Chang Won-sam, and his US counterpart, Timothy Betts, met in Seoul to ink the contract. Under the new deal, South Korea will pay about 1.03 trillion won ($890 million) to cover the costs of stationing the 28,500 members of US Armed Forces Korea here throughout 2019. The figure reflects the rate of increase of South Korea’s annual defense budget, according to the Foreign Ministry in Seoul. Last year, South Korea paid about 960 billion won to its ally for the same purpose.

Koreans mourn overworked doctor’s death

A funeral was held Sunday for emergency doctor Yoon Han-deok, who died of a heart attack at his office and whose death cast light on the difficult working conditions faced by emergency medical staff. Yoon, head of the National Emergency Medical Center, was found dead on Monday during the Lunar New Year holiday. Yoon, who often had to work through the night, is believed to have died due to overwork. The official cause of death was sudden cardiac arrest. Some 300 family members, colleagues, friends and ordinary South Koreans gathered at the National Medical Center on Sunday morning to attend his funeral, pledging to carry on his work to enhance the country’s emergency medical services.

Banks turn to employees to break the mold

Amid slowing momentum in the banking industry and rising competition from fintech players, major financial groups are looking to break away from the status quo and design a new business paradigm. In an attempt to deviate from the conventional banking-focused mindset, most have chosen to fuel in-house ventures this year, encouraging the units to experiment with digital transformation in order to come up with new business ideas. The latest example is the state-run Industrial Bank of Korea, which in late January kicked off two in-house venture teams: Creative is in charge of innovative advertising content, and IBK Bobae is dedicated to pioneering new business road maps.

'Seoul to shut down all dog slaughterhouses'

Seoul Mayor Park Won-soon said, Saturday, the city government will shut down all dog butcheries in the capital as the nation as a whole struggles over whether to eliminate the dog meat business. His remarks came after watching "Underdog," an animated film about abandoned dogs that find themselves in the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). "In the past, we had several dog butcher shops in Cheongnyangni, but I closed almost all of them down through various measures," Park said. "Currently, one or two dog slaughterhouses remain. I cannot force them to go out of business, so I will put pressure on them to move." Of five shops selling dog meat in Gyeongdong Market in Jegi-dong ― the main market for the trade in the capital ― three only sold meat while two also slaughtered dogs on the premises. The mayor's plan was announced as local animal rights groups are pitted against dog farm owners who are protesting to protect their livelihoods. Some Koreans have traditionally eaten dog meat in the summer.

Trump to ban Huawei equipment in US wireless networks

U.S. President Donald Trump is preparing to ban Chinese telecoms giant Huawei from selling its equipment to U.S. wireless carriers, sources told Politico. Trump is expected to sign an executive order banning Chinese telecoms equipment from U.S. wireless networks as early as this week or, at the latest, by the end of this month. "There's a big push to get it out before MWC (Barcelona)," said an industry source familiar with the matter. The event is scheduled to be held from Feb. 25 to 28. By pre-empting the world's largest exhibition for the mobile industry, the White House plans to send a signal that future contracts for new technology must prioritize cyber security. The move will likely worsen the Trump administration's already tense relations with Beijing.

Cost for US troops to rise 8.2%

South Korea signed a provisional agreement to pay around 1.04 trillion won this year for the stationing of U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) troops here, a rise of 8.2 percent year-on-year. Chang Won-sam, the top negotiator in defense cost-sharing negotiations and Timothy Betts, acting deputy assistant secretary and senior adviser for security negotiations and agreements of U.S. State Department signed the one-year contract at the foreign ministry in Seoul, Sunday which the South will pay 1.038 trillion won ($923 million) for stationing 28,500 USFK soldiers in South Korea. The figure was to reflect an 8.2 percent increase of Seoul's own defense budget in 2019 year-on-year. The South paid 960.2 billion won for the defense cost sharing in 2018.

Rich People Resigned to Stagnant Real Estate Market

Most of Korea's rich people expect the real estate market to stagnate for the next five years as new anti-speculation measures bite, a straw poll suggests. The conclusion comes from a survey by Hana Bank of 922 private-banking clients who own W13.3 billion in assets between them and earn an average W450 million a year (US$1=W1,126). Half of their assets consist of real estate. Over 90 percent of them admitted they bought real estate as an investment, and on average they own 1.85 properties. Some 34 percent projected a moderate slowdown across the country and 11 percent a rapid decline, while 39 percent expect prices to remain flat and only 15 percent expect a steady rise.

Seoul City Amasses W40 Billion Cross-Border Exchange Fund

The Seoul Metropolitan Government has amassed a W40 billion fund to promote exchanges with North Korea (US$1=W1,126). The fund was created in 2004. Data obtained by Korean Patriots Party lawmaker Cho Won-jin showed that the city government has allocated W25 billion to the fund this year, the biggest in 14 years, raising the total amount to W39.2 billion. This year, the city wants to spend W15 billion, among other things to help Pyongyang upgrade its water supply and sewage system with W1 billion, establish a smart city platform in the North Korean capital for another W1 billion, spend W3.2 billion on cultural exchanges, and invest in solar infrastructure in Pyongyang.

Seoul City to Start Women-Only Taxi Service

Taxis for women and children only will debut in Seoul in mid-February, while drivers will no longer be allowed to refuse fares based on the destination, the Seoul Metropolitan Government announced Thursday. The city government said taxi franchise Tago Solutions won a business license on Feb. 1 to provide the new types of cabs. The group consists of 50 taxi companies running 4,564 cabs, which is 20 percent of the capital's 254 companies and 22,603 taxis. Tago drivers will be paid a monthly wage instead of being paid per fare. The monthly salary has not been set but will be around W2.5 million, according to an insider.

Experts retort claim that Kaesong Industrial Complex is a handout to N. Korea

As of Feb. 10, it will have been three years since the South Korean government, under former president Park Geun-hye, closed the Kaesong Industrial Complex in response to North Korea’s nuclear weapon tests and missile launches. The possibility of resuming operations at the Kaesong Industrial Complex and tourism to Mt. Kumgang has emerged as one of the potential corresponding measures the US could take to compensate North Korea for closing its Yongbyon nuclear facilities, leading up to the two countries’ second summit on Feb. 27 and 28.

Sanctions still preventing humanitarian aid to N. Korea despite exemptions

In Shakespeare’s comedy “The Merchant of Venice,” the merchant Antonio takes out a massive loan from Shylock, a Jewish moneylender. Antonio promises Shylock that, if he’s unable to repay the loan, Shylock can have the flesh that is nearest his heart. Though Antonio’s unexpected bankruptcy leaves him unable to pay back his loan, a judge frees him from his predicament by ruling that Shylock can cut out the flesh, provided that he doesn’t spill any blood. The court’s judgment against Shylock is analogous to the international community’s regulations on humanitarian aid to North Korea, according to South Korean aid organizations. The international community has declared that sanctions against North Korea don’t apply to humanitarian aid, and the UN Security Council’s Sanctions Committee on North Korea recently granted the International Committee of the Red Cross and other international aid groups an exemption from those sanctions. Some have regarded this as the US sending a conciliatory message to North Korea leading up to the two countries’ second summit.

Biegun returns to Seoul after three-day talks with Kim Hyok-chol

US State Department Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun returned to Seoul on the evening of Feb. 8 following a three-day visit to North Korea. The two sides appear to have made some headway in bridging their differences over the three-day period, with the State Department announcing on Feb. 7 that Biegun was in discussions with North Korean State Affairs Commission Special Representative for US Affairs Kim Hyok-chol on complete denuclearization and the establishment of new bilateral relations and peace on the Korean Peninsula as part of working-level talks. US military transport aircraft departed Pyongyang with Biegun’s delegation on board, traveling a direct route over the West (Yellow) Sea before arriving around 6:30 pm that day at Osan Air Base in Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi Province. In all, Biegun spent over 55 hours in Pyongyang alone, taking into account his arrival time at 10 am on Feb. 6 and departure time at 5:30 pm on Feb. 8. The stay’s duration – the longest in Pyongyang for any US government figure paying a disclosed visit under the Donald Trump administration – may be taken as a sign of how densely packed the two sides’ discussions were.

2nd Trump-Kim summit expected to announce peace declaration

The U.S. and North Korea have reportedly reconciled differences during the three-day working-level talks in Pyongyang by agreeing to include an end-of-war declaration and a partial report of Yongbyon nuclear facilities in the Hanoi Declaration to be adopted in the second Trump-Kim summit. The two countries are planning to work on the denuclearization roadmap agreement in working-level meetings to be continued next week in the third Asian countries such as Vietnam.

Trump: ‘N. Korea will become a different kind of Rocket’

“North Korea, under the leadership of Kim Jong Un, will become a great Economic Powerhouse," U.S. President Donald Trump mentioned again North Korea’s economic potential as he announced on Friday that the second Washington-Pyongyang summit will take place in Hanoi, Vietnam on February 27 and 28. After being debriefed about the outcome from Stephen Biegun, the U.S. State Department’s special presentative for North Korea who concluded three-day working-level talks in Pyongyang, the U.S. president is apparently seeking to boost optimism about his upcoming second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un by suggesting the possibility for the North’s economic growth.

Korea’s export prices continue to slip

The average price of Korea’s exports has been falling significantly, compared with other major exporting countries over the past decade, a new World Trade Organization report suggests. According to the WTO’s monthly industrial export and import price indices released on Sunday, Korea’s export price index stood at 73.6 as of November last year. The WTO’s export price index showcases price changes of various countries’ exports from the baseline of 100 as of January 2005. A decline in Korea’s export price index means that the prices of "Made in Korea products" have slipped from the past.

U.S., Korea sign defense deal for less than $1B

South Korea will pay 1.03 trillion won ($916 million) for the upkeep of the U.S. forces in South Korea (USFK), 8.2 percent more than what it spent last year, the two countries agreed Sunday. It’s the first time Seoul has ever agreed to pay above the 1 trillion won mark as U.S. President Donald Trump urges allies across the world to pay more for their own defense. Seoul’s Foreign Affairs Ministry announced Sunday that it signed a “preliminary” deal with Washington that afternoon in central Seoul to decide how much South Korea will pay to host the 28,500 U.S. troops that make up the USFK. In a press release, the ministry explained that the 8.2-percent hike reflected South Korea’s own year-on-year defense budget increase.

No clarity on Biegun’s progress

U.S. Special Representative Stephen Biegun’s recent trip to Pyongyang remained under a veil of secrecy over the weekend as South Korean officials hope for the best in the lead up to the second U.S.-North Korea summit in Hanoi, Vietnam, on Feb. 27 and 28. Very little has been revealed about Biegun’s negotiations with North Korean officials, which wrapped up Friday after the nuclear envoy arrived in the pariah state last Wednesday, spending a total of 55 hours in the North. Biegun flew from Pyongyang to Seoul Friday evening and spent most of Saturday briefing South Korean officials about his trip before returning to the United States Sunday.

Mass movement that led to a modern Korea

It was 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 1, 1919, when a group of activists gathered in a restaurant in downtown Seoul, ready to proclaim Korea’s independence and demand liberation from Japan’s colonial rule. The group of independence fighters, who became known as the 33 leaders, signed the Proclamation of Korean Independence at the Taiwhagwan restaurant in Insa-dong, Jongno District, central Seoul, then sent a copy to the Japanese governor general. Around the same time, thousands of students gathered in nearby Pagoda Park. They read out the proclamation in full. Eventually, they took to the streets, distributing copies of the declaration, hailing, “Manse,” or “Long live!” Formerly used as a chant in honor of the king, Manse now came to mean “Long live an independent Korea!”

Once the Cause of Conflict, Can North Korea Now Become the Subject of Cooperation Between the U.S. and China?

China may change the game by joining the peace process on the Korean peninsula, an effort that had been centered on the two Koreas and the United States. The summit between the U.S. and China immediately following the second North Korea-U.S. summit in Vietnam on February 27-28 may be the decisive moment. Attention is on the possibility of change. Will the U.S. and China, which had clashed over North Korea, now cooperate in resolving the issues on the Korean peninsula? In his State of the Union address on February 5 (local time), U.S. President Donald Trump announced that a second summit with North Korea will be held in Vietnam on February 27-28. In a luncheon with the anchors of major broadcasting stations prior to the State of the Union address, President Trump said he would hold a summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the end of the month. The Hong Kong daily, the South China Morning Postreported that both summits would be held in Danang on February 27-28.

Agreement Reached with the U.S. on Defense Expenses, But We Need to Revise the Toxic “One-Year” Contract Period

Talks between South Korea and the United States on the Special Measures Agreement have practically come to an end. Lawmaker Lee Soo-hyuck, a Democratic Party of Korea secretary in the parliamentary Foreign Affairs and Unification Committee said in the party's policy meeting on February 7, "Negotiations with the U.S. on defense expenses are heading toward the end." He also conveyed, "We have decided to set only this year's budget and are in the process of setting the amount to less than 1.5 trillion won after reflecting the 8.2% increase in defense expenses." According to a foreign ministry official, both countries will sign a provisional agreement as early as this weekend. In the end, the two countries reached an agreement after South Korea accepted the U.S. demand for a one-year contract period and the U.S. retreated from its initial amount.

Second NK-US Summit to Be Held in Vietnam: Now to Reap Fruits of Denuclearization and Peace

The second summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and U.S. President Donald Trump will be held in Vietnam on February 27-28. "As part of a bold new diplomacy, we continue our historic push for peace on the Korean peninsula," said President Trump in his State of the Union address on February 5 (local time). He then announced plans for the second summit with North Korea. At the same time, U.S. Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun, who was in Seoul, flew to Pyongyang on a U.S. military plane this day and engaged in working-level negotiations on the agreement for the summit with his counterpart, Kim Hyok-chol, special representative for the United States at the North Korean State Affairs Commission.

Scrap trash found among plastic waste illegally exported to Philippines

Customs officials found scrap trash such as metal and other unrecyclable waste inside the containers which have been illegally exported to the Philippines and brought back due to protests by environmental activists. About 6,300 tons of selected plastic waste were shipped to Mindanao for recycling in July and October last year. The shipment sparked protests in the Southeast Asian country, with civic groups asking South Korea to bring back garbage containers. The South's environment ministry said that 51 containers with 1,200 tons of waste were returned through a proxy execution to the southwestern port city of Pyeongtaek on February 3.

S. Korea's military deploys remotely-delivered mines

To replace conventional anti-personnel mines, South Korea has deployed a recyclable home-made munition system that allows its operator to identify enemy targets and launch an attack from a remote location. The Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) said Friday that the remotely-delivered system developed by Hanwha consists of a detector for identification and a killer device. Ammunition and equipment are lightweight, easy to install and recycle, and can be reused repeatedly.

Hyundai Glovis opens business stronghold in Vladivostok

Hyundai Glovis, the logistics wing of South Korea's Hyundai auto group, has opened a new business stronghold in Russia's far eastern port of Vladivostok to step up cargo transportation using the Trans-Siberian Railway (TSR). It's the company's third business center in Russia. Hyundai Glovis operates such centers in Moscow and Saint Petersburg, an important port on the Baltic Sea. In August last year, Hyundai Glovis launched a regular TSR "block (unit)" train service once a week from Vladivostok to Saint Petersburg. Compared to wagonload trains, which comprise differing numbers of cars for various customers, a block train can save time and money because all cars carry the same commodity and are shipped from the same origin to the same destination, without being split up or stored en route.

NPS seeks to correct Namyang Dairy’s low-dividend policy

South Korea’s National Pension Service (NPS) will invoke stewardship guidance to correct the stingy dividend policy of Namyang Dairy Products Co., making it the second target in the fund’s commitment to stronger institutional responsibility to improve corporate governance and shareholder value in Korean Inc. The world’s third-largest pension fund with 635 trillion won ($568 billion) assets under management has taken issue with Namyang Dairy’s low dividends since 2016, refusing to approve the company’s financial statements for three years in a row.

CJ Hello stk jumps as LG Uplus poised to approve near $900mn acquisition

Shares of CJ Hello, Korea’s largest cable TV operator, flew high on Friday on growing prospects of the company going under the LG family and becoming a strong player in the media landscape where mobile video platforms increasingly replace the traditional channels in home entertainment. LG Uplus, which has vowed to complete the acquisition of CJ Hello in the first half, plans to convene a board meeting next week to finalize a near 1 trillion won ($890 million) deal to take over 53.92 percent stake in CJ Hello from CJ ENM.

Korea’s FX reserves rise to fresh high of $405.5 bn in Jan

South Korea’s foreign exchange reserves reached a record high of above $405.5 billion in January, helped by weakening in the U.S. dollar. According to data released by the Bank of Korea on Friday, the nation’s FX balance came to $405.51 billion as of the end of January, up $1.82 billion from the previous month. The central bank attributed the growth to the weakening greenback that led to an increase in the value of other currencies when converted into the dollar. The total value of foreign currency holdings in Korea has gained for three months in a row.
