Economics book for immigrants

By Kim Ji-soo

One of the most confounding intricacies for immigrants may well be the economics.

To help better understand how the Korean economy works, the Korean Institute for Happy Family in collaboration with the Korea Exchange Bank's foundation, has published 10,000 guidebooks in five languages. The books are available in Korean, English, Chinese, Tagalog and Vietnamese.

About 70 pages long, the book provides real-life advice about such things as Korean banks' operating hours, how to open a bank account, using Internet banking and avoiding voice phishing.

The books will be distributed to support centers for multicultural families, libraries and other related agencies. There are an estimated 750,000 multicultural families living in Korea.
