0



The average debt of Korean households rose 6.1 percent to 75.31 million won ($66,700) as of March from a year ago, data showed Sunday.

According to Statistics Korea, South Korean household assets on average reached 415.73 million won, up 7.5 percent from a year earlier, but the increase in household debt raised concerns over the impact of a possible hike in market rates.

Local banks are poised to raise interest rates following the rate hike by the US Federal Reserve to a range of 2.25 to 2.5 percent Wednesday.
