China’s food exports to North Korea remain abnormally low in April: data
For second consecutive month, China reports sending no fruit, vegetables, corn, rice, or meat to DPRK
China’s officially reported food exports to North Korea remained unusually low in April after plummeting last month, according to public data released this week by the Chinese General Administration of Customs (GAC) and analyzed by NK Pro.
The new numbers come amid some emerging signs that the DPRK’s trade activity has begun to pick up again after weeks of reported border closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic — but the numbers also show that the North’s supply chain for bringing in food from the outside world may still be operating far below its usual levels
