S. Korea's foreign reserves stay almost flat in March

South Korea's foreign exchange reserves stayed almost flat in March from the previous month as higher investment profits overshadowed the lower dollar conversion value of non-dollar assets, the central bank said Wednesday.

The country's foreign reserves reached US$327.41 billion in March, up $10 million from the previous month, according to the Bank of Korea (BOK).

The FX reserves reached $327.4 billion last month, the first fall in nine months after hitting a record high of $328.91 billion in January.
