South Korea's exports plunged by double digits on-year in November, falling for the 12th consecutive month.
The trade ministry says outbound shipments fell 14.three percent on-year to 44 billion U.S. dollars last month due to slowing global demand and the ongoing U.S.-China trade dispute.
The slowdown of the nation's key export items added to the decline.
Semiconductor exports tumbled over 30 percent and petrochemical goods slumped nearly 20 percent.
Shipments to China fell 12 percent, while those to the U.S. and Japan dropped over eight percent and 10 percent respectively.
