First and foremost, it must be stated that the Asian country is a great unknown entity for the whole world, except perhaps for China.
China is the country’s main political and economic ally. 54% of North Korean exports go to the People’s Republic while its second most important customer, as strange as it may seem, is Algeria, accounting for 30% of its exports. Neighbouring South Korea is the destination of the remaining 16% of the country’s exports. As you can see, diversification does not seem to be a key feature of the North Korean export market. In total, the country’s exports amount to 3.834 billion US dollars, which is a similar level to Mozambique or the nearest comparable level in Europe, San Marino.

August has not been a good month in terms of jobs. According to statistics published by the Ministry of Employment, the unemployment rate is up and Social Security contributions are down.

Social Security lost 179,485 contributors (0.97%), while the unemployment rate climbed to 19%, significantly higher than the rate in other countries in the European Union (except Greece with a rate of 23.5%).
