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Northeast Business Delegation in Pyongyang and the North Korean Business Delegation in Shenyang should immediately be withdrawn by the North East People’s Government Business Committee and the North Korean Government.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).

Vice-Chairman Bo Yibo
