New papers on the DPRK’s markets and Chinese investment

In addition to the Haggard/Noland book release, there were a couple of other interesting North Korea events in Washington DC this week that I wanted to point out:

1. Korea Economic Institute: The Markets of Pyongyang
John Everard, UK Ambassador to the DPRK (2006-2008)

-Read his paper here (PDF).
-See his power point presentation here (PDF).
-See his full presentation in three parts: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.

2. US-Korea Institute at SAIS: Silent Partners: Chinese Joint Ventures in North Korea
Drew Thompson, Director of China Studies and Starr Senior Fellow at The Nixon Center

-The event web page is here.
-Read an executive summary here
-Read the paper here.

Both papers are well worth reading.
