Business investment rise in Q1 led by big companiesUpdated: 2014-06-09 AM 6:27:27 (KST)
Latest reports show business investment in Korea rose in the first three months of this year,.. mainly due to increased spending by a number of nation's top conglomerates.
According to corporate watcher CEO Score on Sunday,.. Korea's top 30 conglomerates invested about 20 billion U.S. dollars in the first quarter.
That's nearly 9-percent higher than the same period last year.
But, if we put aside Korea's biggest business group Samsung, which boosted its investment by 48-percent, the rest invested about 4-percent less than they did in the first quarter of 2013.
