All News 08:04 September 02, 2016

SEOUL, Sept. 2 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's economy grew at a faster-than-expected pace in the second quarter from three months earlier on increased local demand and exports, central bank data showed Friday.

In the April-June period, the country's gross domestic product (GDP) expanded 0.8 percent from the previous quarter, accelerating from a 0.5 percent on-quarter expansion three months earlier, according to preliminary data from the Bank of Korea (BOK).

The latest reading marks a slight increase from an earlier estimate of a 0.7 percent on-quarter expansion in late July.

From a year earlier, the local economy grew 3.3 percent in the second quarter, compared with a 2.8 percent on-year expansion in the previous quarter.
