Monday, September 18, 2006
Reports said that exports of Korean ships are expected to exceed $22b this year on the back of more sales of high-value-added vessels including liquefied natural gas carriers. The Korean shipbuilders association says domestic shipyards are likely to export $10.7b worth of vessels in the second half in addition to the $11 billion in the first half of the year. The association believes the industry will see a trade surplus of $19 billion this year, accounting for 70 percent of the country's aggregate trade surplus. Source: Arirang News
