South Korea's economy grew at its fastest pace in two years in the April-June period on government stimulus and a rise in consumer spending, the central bank said Thursday.

Gross domestic product expanded 2.3 percent in the second quarter from a year earlier, accelerating from the first-quarter's 1.5 percent gain, the Bank of Korea said.
