FY 2009/2010 Research Topic: 4-10
Economic Management and Industrial Structure in DPR of Korea


This study aims to examine the unique self-reliance policies of the Worker’s Party in D.P.R.K. They not only brought about the rapid industrial development in the 1950s and 1960s, but also induced some latent factors, which partly appeared as the external debt problem in the 1970s and the economic stagnation accompanying the food shortage in the 1990s and 2000s.

In order to investigate the structural causes for economic difficulties in this country, the organizer intends to analyze the trend of the national income, the formation of policies on the economic construction, the system of the governmental controls on industrial companies, and the organization of enterprise clusters.
