South Korea reassures foreign investors amid rising economic nationalism
Seoul has no plans to introduce defensive tools to help business protect itself， South Korea‘s finance minister says.
While conceding that economic nationalism was running high， Han Duck-soo said the government would continue to embrace international capital and apply the rule of law fairly.
He said the threat of hostile takeovers would keep South Korean companies alert to the constant need to become more efficient.
South Korea has been going through an unsettled period as foreign investors play an increasingly prominent role in the business sector， once the preserve of family-run chaebol and state-operated companies.
