Financial and Economic Committee, State Council, Central People’s Government (Approved, replied)

On: Withdrawing the Northeast Business Delegation in Pyongyang and the North Korean Business Delegation in Shenyang

Sent to: Ministry of Foreign Trade

Copied to: Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Date: 1950

Number: Financial and Economic Committee No. 1441

Address:

Instruction no. 2007 from the Foreign Affairs Secretary was received. The Northeast Business Delegation in Pyongyang and the North Korean Business Delegation in Shenyang were set up prior to the founding of our Central People’s Government in order to develop foreign trade between the Northeast Region and North Korea and to establish a government business entity. Now that the Central People’s Government has been established, the entire country’s foreign trade work will be unified under the Central People’s Government’s Ministry of Foreign Trade. Based on the above, the Northeast Business Delegation in Pyongyang and the North Korean Business Delegation in Shenyang should immediately be withdrawn by the North East People’s Government Business Committee and the North Korean Government. The Central People’s Government Ministry of Foreign Trade should also consider, according to the current trade situation between the two countries, whether or not it is necessary to set up such business delegations between the two countries. If it is necessary, the Ministry of Foreign Trade and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs should formally negotiate and reach a decision with the North Korean Government. In the future the North Korean Government wants to dispatch a business delegation to our country, it should be stationed in our country’s capital, Beijing (if necessary, a representative can be stationed in the Northeast).

外秘字第二二七号请示悉。查前东北人民政府派驻北鲜平壤之商业代表团及北鲜政府派驻潘阳之商业代表团,系在我中央人民政府成立前,为发展东北区与北鲜间之对外贸易而设立之政府商业代表机关。现我中央人民政府业已成立,全国之对外贸易工作已统一于中央人民政府贸易部。因之上述,我东北区派驻平壤之商业代表团及北鲜政府派驻潘阳之商业代表团,即应由东北人民政府商会北鲜政府撤销,并即由中央人民政府贸易部根据目前两国间的贸易情况,考虑两国间是否有互相设立此种商业代表团机构的必要,如属必需,则应由贸易部会同外交部正式向北鲜政府洽商决定之。今后北鲜政府如向我国派驻商业代表机构,应驻于我国首都北京(必要时可在东北派驻代表)。
