Time now for an in-depth look at the market news as we start the week.
And for that, I'm joined on the line by Dr. Yang Jun-sok, professor of economics at the Catholic University of Korea.
Professor Yang, thank you for making time today.
The three main indexes on Wall Street closed Friday at new record highs again.
Today here in Korea, the Kospi also higher. What's the story in the global and domestic markets?
Finance Minister Hong Nam-ki talking about the Moon Administration's New Northern Policy, which is a key initiative of the Moon administration calling for closer economic cooperation with countries to the north, like Russia and Mongolia. Do you think we can expect some achievements on that front this year?
The IMF is due to release a revised outlook for the global economy. We've also got the World Economic Forum opening in Davos, Switzerland. What should we be watching this week?
Alright, Professor Yang.
We'll have to leave it there for today.
Thanks so much for sharing your insights.
