South Korea's ICT exports last month had their best August on record thanks to strong demand for semiconductors and displays.
The trade ministry said Tuesday that ICT shipments came to 20.3 billion U.S. dollars, up more than 33 percent on-year.
It was also the second highest on record for any month since September 2018.
Semiconductor exports came to around 11.8 billion dollars on the back of growing demand for mobiles and computers.
Display exports were up 22 percent to some 2 billion dollars.
