South Korea's import prices are up for a fourth month in a row on a rise in oil prices.
According to the Bank of Korea, the import price index for March stood at 109.seven-three, up three.four percent on month.
This is mainly because the price of Dubai crude , South Korea's benchmark, was up, on year, by more than 90 percent.
Export prices also rose for a four straight month up three.three percent compared to February.
That was largely due to a weakening dollar, making the won more expensive, and higher prices for semiconductors, computers and chemical products.
