China sends economic officials to N. Korea to develop joint economic zones
BEIJING/SHENYANG, China, Jan. 9 (Yonhap) -- China has dispatched a large group of economic officials to North Korea in a bid to find ways to boost joint North Korea-China economic zones, which reportedly remain largely inactive due to a lack of investment, sources said Wednesday.

The sources well versed in North Korea-China relations said that China sent about 70 commerce officials from Jilin Province to the North several months ago as part of the country's efforts to invigorate the joint economic zones in the North Korean city of Rajin and the islands of Hwanggumpyong and Wihwa.
