KIC officials plan to visit shuttered complex within three weeks

Kaesong Industrial Complex directorate hopes to send two individuals per company

Officials from the shuttered inter-Korean Kaesong Industrial Complex (KIC) are in negotiations with Seoul to visit the facility within three weeks, a former KIC business owner told NK News on Monday.

KIC, once a symbol of inter-Korean economic cooperation, was temporarily closed by the Park Geun-hye administration 15 months ago as part of Seoul’s response to Pyongyang’s fourth nuclear test in January that year.
