Pyongyang, January 14 (KCNA) -- Master plans have been worked out for the development of 13 economic parks in the DPRK.

In this regard, Yun Yong Sok, vice-chairman of the Korea Economic Development Association, told KCNA:

The Presidium of the DPRK Supreme People's Assembly adopted the 'DPRK Law on Economic Development Parks' in Juche 102 (2013) and decided to set up 13 economic parks in eight provinces (municipalities).

The master plans for their development, worked out by people's committees of relevant provinces, contain the construction of structures and roads and power and communication networks on the principle of giving priority to infrastructure construction.

Under the plans, works will be conducted to develop Chongjin, Amnokgang, Manpho and Hyesan economic zones, Hungnam, Hyondong and Wiwon industrial zones, Onsong Island and Sinphyong tourist zones, Songrim and Waudo export processing zones and Orang and Pukchong agricultural zones.

A briefing on investment is expected to be given at exhibitions and expositions in Pyongyang and Rason cities of the DPRK and other countries to introduce the development master plans.

The DPRK will further strengthen the international exchange and cooperation through those economic development zones.
