Lou Gerstner, IBM's CEO, said on a visit to South Korea that his company is to pump money into the country. A report in local English language paper the Korea Herald said IBM will increase the amount of equipment it buys from South Korean companies by around 20 per cent, accounting for a total of $1.2 billion in 1998. Gerstner, who is on a visit of the Far East, said that it will cooperate with a South Korean government department to set up units aimed at assisting the growth of the small and medium business market. IBM will also create a software and support centre in the country. That centre will mean a $15 million investment over the next three years. The reports said that Big Blue was making the investments because it believed that South Korea and its high technology units had a healthy future. ®
