SEOUL (Reuters) – South Korea’s new finance minister said on Wednesday the government’s fiscal policy and the central bank’s monetary policy need to be in harmony to deal with heightened uncertainties.

Finance Minister Hong Nam-ki made the remarks just before he began a meeting with Bank of Korea Governor Lee Ju-yeol, arranged on the occasion of his inauguration last week.
