SEJONG (Reuters) - South Korea's finance minister on Tuesday said the government would talk to the International Monetary Fund as part of its efforts to avoid being labelled a currency manipulator by the United States.
"We will discuss (our currency policies) with the IMF. We are doing so using various channels, and we will try our best to make sure we don't get the currency-manipulator label."
Kim also said while the government has not decided whether the economy needs a supplementary budget or not, any spending plan needs to be carried out swiftly once the decision has been made to boost growth and add jobs fast.
