Korea's production in overall industry rose over two percent in June compared to the previous month.

Investment in plant and equipment went down by 1.4 percent from May but spending output edged up slightly by zero.3 percent signaling the economy might be emerging out of the sluggish spending trap following the ferry sinking.
