IAED-USA: Economics, Business, and Trade Relationships: Special Economic Zones
Tuesday 21 September 2021

REGISTRATION

Over the last 25 years, North Korea has created several Special Economic Zones (SEZs) in an attempt to attract foreign investment and develop trade relationships with neighboring countries. These include the Rason SEZ on the border with Russia, the Sinuiji Zone, on the border with China and the Kaesong Industrial Park on the border with South Korea. On 10 February 2016, the South Korean Ministry of Unification announced that the Kaesong Industrial Park would be "temporarily" closed and all staff recalled, and North Korea responded by expelling all South Korean workers.
This webinar will review the history and effectiveness of these zones in promoting trade and cooperation, through the direct experience of people who have visited them on multiple occasions and will look into the possibility of re-opening these zones and developing tourism, manufacturing, and trade relationships with North Korea in the future.
