China's Controversial Role in North Korea's Economic Transformation: The Dilemmas of Dependency

Szalontai, Balazs / Choi, Chang Yong

Abstract

This article investigates the causes of North Korea’s failure to pursue export-oriented industrialization, and examines whether Sino-North Korean economic cooperation might facilitate such a transformation or not. It concludes that Sino-North Korean economic interactions are more likely to reinforce North Korea’s traditional resource dependency than to stimulate export-oriented industrialization.
