The International Monetary Fund raised its forecasted growth for South Korea's economy during 2010 to 5.75% from a previous forecast of 4.5%, adding that central bank of South Korea should increase its interest rate.

Moreover, current monetary policy remains highly accommodative, as the monetary policy makers are seeking for controlling the inflation and avoid falling behind the nation's growth that might increase inflation risks, which may led them to increase the interest rate during the upcoming period.
