The Economic Times - - Around The World -

Seoul: South Korean 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, who have re­port­edly been at odds with each other over how to ad­dress the sit­u­a­tion, were both dis­missed from their posts, a Blue House spokesman said.
