All national dailies wrote that the government of South Korea officially revoked Japan’s preferential trade partner status on Wednesday. The ROK government said that a public opinion survey conducted between Aug. 14 and Sept. 3 showed that 91% of respondents thought revoking the status would be reasonable. A senior ROK Trade, Industry and Energy Ministry official told reporters on Tuesday that the move is part of a regular review of the nation’s trade system and not a countermeasure against Japan.
