Korea's finance minister is once again calling for aggressive, expansionary policy to revive the sluggish economy.
Speaking at an event with journalists on Monday, Choi Kyung-hwan said the expansionary measures were needed now and would likely extend beyond this year.
They echo previous comments he's made since taking office less than two weeks ago.
Choi added that the government and the Bank of Korea are on the same page in their assessments of the current economic situation.
There is growing speculation that the central bank will lower its interest rate next month for the first time in more than a year.
