[ News, Economy / Industry, February 4 2008] Sales jump at Korean online shopping malls

Sales of Korea’s online shopping malls grew 16.3 percent in December from a year earlier, buoyed by a rise in the sales of winter clothing and travel-related services, a government report said Monday (Feb. 4).

The combined sales of the shopping malls were tallied at 1.50 trillion won ($1.59 billion), up from 1.29 trillion won a year earlier, the National Statistical Office (NSO) said in the report.

This is the highest monthly figure since the country started compiling on-line sales statistics in January 2001.
