South Korea's exports in November hit an all-time monthly high, reaching 60 billion U.S. dollars for the first time on record.
The Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy says exports soared more than 32 percent on-year, to 60.4 billion dollars.
It was the 13th consecutive month of growth.
Key exports, including chips, cosmetics and computers drove the surge, with each breaking its own record for the month of November.
At the current pace, South Korea's exports are expected to set a new annual record in 2021.
