The inter-Korean industrial base in the North Korean border town of Kaesong was launched in the early 2000s by combining South Korean corporate capital and technology with North Korea’s cheap labor force. More than 47,000 North Koreans currently work at the complex. A delegation from South Korea’s Unification Ministry took the photo in September.
