South Korea’s Foreign Reserves Fall Most Since November 2008

October 04, 2011

Oct. 5 (Bloomberg) -- South Korea’s foreign-exchange reserves dropped the most in almost three years in September due to declines in the value of the euro and pound against the dollar, according to the central bank.

Reserves shrank to $303.4 billion from $312.2 billion in August, the Bank of Korea said in a statement in Seoul today. That’s the biggest drop since November 2008.
