25 July 2013 Last updated at 02:42 BST

South Korea has reported better than forecast growth numbers for the second quarter of the year.

Asia's fourth largest economy grew by 1.1% in the April to June period, from the previous three months.

When compared with the same period last year, the economy expanded by 2.3%.

James Rooney, chairman of Advanced Capital Partners, told the BBC that while he was not too impressed with the latest figures, the new government has been "restoring its focus" and South Korea's growth rate was likely to pick up.
