Korea Economic Institute of America Presents:

Similar Policies, Different Outcomes: Two Decades of Economic Reforms in North Korea and Cuba

Read Event Description

Event Date

April 27th 12:00pm - 12:00am EST

Event Description

North Korea and Cuba benefitted economically from Soviet Union support, but after the collapse of the Soviet bloc, both countries had to reexamine their policies. Since 1990, these two countries have tried various economic reforms under their centrally planned economies. Which country has been more effective in their efforts? As the two nations are both undergoing leadership transitions, how likely are further economic reforms?

Join us on April 27 as KEI hosts Dr. José Luis León-Manríquez, Professor of International & East Asian Studies at the Metropolitan Autonomous University in Mexico as he presents his paper comparing the successes and failures of economic policies in North Korea and Cuba since 1990 and their impact on the future of these countries.
