One of the results of the recent visit of former US President Bill Clinton to Pyongyang is a renewed interest to explore business opportunities with North-Korea. The current improvements in the relations between North- and South-Korea will fuel this growing interest as well.

North-Korea is now opening its doors to foreign enterprises. It is competing with other Asian countries by offering skilled labour for low wages. It established free trade zones and several sectors, such as renewable energy, shipbuilding, agro business, textile, tourism, logistics and mining, can be considered for trade and investment. In addition, the country is attractive in the field of Information Technology (see photo).

Do you want to be informed about these interesting business opportunities? Then join our  unique afternoon seminar on Monday 21 September 2009 in Beijing. Three speakers from Europe will address various aspects of doing business in North-Korea, and  they will also share their own experiences. The program of this informative seminar is as follows:

15:30-16:00 hours  Registration and welcome of attendees

16:00-16:30 hours  General introduction: the latest developments in doing business with North-Korea

16:30-17:00 hours  North-Korea: an upcoming IT-outsourcing destination

17:00-17:30 hours  Experiences of some large European companies, such as ING and Unilever, in North-Korea

17:30-17:45 hours  Questions and answers

17:45-18:15 hours  Informal meeting

Several short videos (e.g. on software development and the Kaesong Industrial Zone) will also be shown. Details of the program, including the location, can be found in the attached file. Please feel free to forward this mail to other interested persons.
