S.Korean port authority to review feasibility of inter-Korean cruise program

Incheon Port Authority says profitability will be the main issue in launching new cruise routes

South Korea’s Incheon Port Authority (IPA) will conduct research into the feasibility and profitability of three major inter-Korean cooperation projects early next year, the IPA confirmed to NK News on Monday.

In a phone interview with NK News, an official at the IPA — who wished to remain anonymous — confirmed that it would investigate "action plans" and the feasibility of an inter-Korean cruise program, the modernization of Nampo port, and the importation of North Korean sand from the coastal city of Haeju.
