South Korea on track to develop repurchase market

South Korea, Asia’s fourth-biggest economy, is seeking to become an advanced financial market, and that includes developing a repurchase market, the Financial Times reported November 24.

Seoul said last week is planned to allow short selling of bonds next year to build up liquidity.
