■ The Korean economy is maintaining a modest recovery led by the continued increase in internal and external demand for goods, although its production underwent temporary adjustments.

○ Influenced by disruptions in the supply of raw materials and intermediate goods, automobiles and construction sectors experienced partial constraints in production.

- Rising prices of raw materials like crude oil are partly limiting the economic recovery while growth in services production slowed.

○ However, exports are rising fast and sentiment indices are improving, suggesting that the Korean economy is still in a recovery phase.

- As global industrial production and goods trade increased by a large margin, exceeding the pre-Covid-19 level, the Korean economy is exhibiting a solid, continued improvement in exports and equipment investment.

- In addition, the cyclical components of the coincident and leading composite indices and the CCSI continued to rise, hinting at growing expectations for an economic recovery.

○ Meanwhile, due to the spread of Covid-19 variants and rising infection cases, economic uncertainties remain high.

- Due to the surge in infection cases since late June, the economic recovery may be delayed.
