Thursday, the Bank of Korea said South Korea's foreign exchange reserves increased 2.3% month-on-month in March to US$206.34 billion. In February, it was US$201.54 billion.

The increase in the reserves was mainly due to a weakness in the U.S. dollar, which boosted the dollar value of assets in other currencies. The increase recorded in March was the most in nearly three years.
