S.Korea's KOSPI hits 3,000 for the first time in history

SEOUL, Jan 6 (Reuters) - South Korea’s main KOSPI index surpassed 3,000 for the first time on Wednesday, as investors driving the steepest rally in years look towards a broad recovery in exports beyond the country’s tech titans.

The KOSPI surged 30.8% in 2020, its largest percentage gain since 2009. The index took 13-and-a-half years to break above the 3,000 mark after hitting 2,000 in mid-2007. (Reporting by Cynthia Kim, Jihoon Lee; editing by Richard Pullin)
