[Korea.net News, Science / Tech, February 4 2008] Panels, handsets boost Korea's IT exports

Exports of Korean information technology (IT) goods grew 10.5 percent in January from a year earlier, as brisk sales of display panels and mobile handsets offset weak demand for semiconductors, a government report showed Monday (Feb. 4).

According to the report by the Ministry of Information and Communication, Korea’s IT exports amounted to $10.89 billion last month, up from the 9.84 billion won recorded in the same period of 2007. It was the seventh consecutive month for the figure to exceed the $10 billion mark.
