Chinese cereal exports to North Korea remain high in August, September: data
New trade figures come as World Food Programme warns about continued food insecurity in the DPRK
Chinese cereal exports to North Korea remained high in August and September, according to data compiled by the country’s General Customs Administration (GAC) and published by the International Trade Centre (ITC).
The latest export figures follow a massive spike in cereals trade that began earlier in the summer, in the aftermath of a June meeting in Pyongyang between Chinese leader Xi Jinping and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
According to the ITC, China shipped more than $15 million worth of cereals to the DPRK in August and more than $16 million worth in September.[/p
