We have been actively developing our partnerships with businesses that either operate in North Korea, once operated there, or are considering operating there. The purpose of this is to tap the advice of business leaders in building a knowledge base of key issues in North Korea that need to be overcome in order to promote economic development. This will help us contextualize the training we conduct and raise our impact in these sessions.
So far, we have been successful in reaching out to a broad stratum of businesses and have benefited greatly from their advice and feedback. As we move ahead, we will consider how we can more systematically build materials using this knowledge base.
If you know anyone who could serve as an advisor on this initiative, do email us at CEteam@chosonexchange.org.
