This regular publication looks at current international, domestic, and peninsular affairs concerning North Korea while also offering commentary and tourism information on the country.

In international news, South Korea has approved a plan by a foreign NGO to make contact with North Korea. Furthermore, a ship has travelled from North Korea to Vladivostok, marking the start of the first regular cargo and passenger ferry service between the two nations.

In Inter-Korean news, there are hopes that Pyeongchang Olympics scheduled for 2018 could improve relations between the North and South. A South Korean tour group, Hyundai Asan also hopes to resume Inter-Korean tours.

On the domestic front, according to a newspaper article from North Korea’s top university, it seems that there are requests that companies focus their management activities on seeking effect and profits rather than relying on centralized planning and guided management.
