Seoul (South Korea), September 29: The state-run Korea Development Bank (KDB) said Monday it has locally issued green bonds worth 200 billion won (US$171 million).
The won-denominated green bonds, which were sold to domestic institutional investors, will come due in three years and carry an annual interest rate of 1 percent.
