SEOUL, April 17 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's national territory increased by 44 square kilometers last year helped by various development and reclamation projects, the transport ministry said Monday.

The country's overall territory came to 100,339 square kilometers at the end of 2016, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transportation said in a statement.

The increase is roughly equivalent to 15 times the area of the Yeouido financial district in Seoul. Yeouido has the country's main stock exchange, and many financial firms have their headquarters there. It covers 2.9 square kilometers.
