China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Pres­i­dent Moon Jae-in sacked his top two eco­nomic of­fi­cials on Fri­day, the gov­ern­ment said, as the world’s 11th-largest econ­omy strug­gles with slow­ing growth, ris­ing un­em­ploy­ment and per­sis­tent in­come gaps. Fi­nance Min­is­ter Kim Dong-yeon and pres­i­den­tial chief of staff for pol­icy Jang Ha-sung had both been re­placed, top Blue House spokesman Yoon Young-chan said in a tele­vised state­ment. The pair had re­port­edly been at odds with each other.
