Choson Exchange, a Singapore-registered NGO with a mandate to support North Korea’s future business leaders, will host its inaugural DPRK Economic Forum in April.

The forum will take place in Pyongyang from April 20 to 27.

Participants will get a chance to connect with North Koreans as part of the forum’s interactive business training sessions, which will run for three days. Discussion sessions will tackle North Korean business and economic policy innovation.
