FDI and JVCs in the DPRK…

The General Association of Koreans in Japan (Chongryun) have made a video about foreign direct investment and joint venture companies in the DPRK.  I have posted links to the video below.  It features the PyongSu pharmaceutical factory among other things.  It is in Korean and Japanese (with Japanese subtitles), so if there are any readers who care to translate, please let me know if there is any interesting information in the videos:

    It would be interesting to see how many foreign businesses have actually turned a profit investing in North Korea compared to the number that have failed.
