Korea Economic Institute of America Presents:

The North Korean Economy: Challenges and Opportunities for Reform

Read Event Description

Event Date

July 31st 12:00pm - 12:00am EST

Event Description

However, to truly fulfill that pledge, North Korea will need to engage in the types of reform that China, South Korea, and others have been advocating.  What steps has North Korea taken under Kim Jong-un to reform the economy and how successful have they been? What challenges are posed by the remnants of a failing state system trying to continue to function alongside emergent markets? How could international financial institutions help North Korea undertake economic reform?  What obstacles does North Korea face in developing a normal functioning economy?

Please join the Korea Economic Institute of America and the Korea Institute for International Economic Policy for a discussion on these and other issues that face the North Korea economy today.
