Japan partially reverses curbs on tech materials exports to South Korea

TOKYO/SEOUL (Reuters) -- The Japanese government has reversed curbs on exports of photoresists to South Korea, one of three technology materials which it had restricted since July, a Trade Ministry official said on Friday.

The step comes as Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean President Moon Jae-in are expected to meet on Tuesday on the sidelines of a trilateral summit that includes China.
