North Koreans enjoy home-delivered cold noodles by mobile phone

Pyongyang offers cutting-edge customer service in an effort to revive its economy

North Korea has started an e-commerce service for both PC and mobile phones selling locally made products and delivering them to customers, a pro-North Japanese newspaper reported.

The General Bureau of Service for the People, which manages most of the restaurants in Pyongyang, began providing regular e-commerce services on New Year's Day after a few months of test operations last year, the Choson Sinbo reported Thursday.
