October 26, 2011

Oct. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Bank of Korea Governor Kim Choong- Soo said South Korea’s current-account surplus may be below the central bank’s estimate of $17 billion next year because of a slowdown in export growth.

He also said in a speech in Seoul today that the central bank’s challenge is to stabilize prices and financial market while helping sustain solid economic growth.
