Moon administration will seek to ease restrictions on inter-Korean exchange: MOU

Proposed revision of 30-year-old law aims to expand autonomy of South Koreans engaging in projects with the North

The Moon administration is planning to re-propose an amendment bill that if implemented would relax regulations on inter-Korean exchange and cooperation, Seoul's Ministry of Unification (MOU) said this week.

The revision would make it easier for South Korean citizens to make contact with counterparts from the North as well as enforce stricter review of any future attempts to restrict inter-Korean exchange.
