Promising Sinuiju International Economic Zone

   Created in July 2014, the Sinuiju International Economic Zone is making progress with an aim at developing itself into a world-level special economic zone, an international city of tourism, trade, hi-tech industry, bonded processing and finance.
   Facing Dandong, a border city of China, with the Amnok, one of the five major rivers in Korea, between them, it is linked to the capital city, Pyongyang, and other regions of the country through a developed network of railways, road, airport and harbour. Connected to China through bridges, it has a bright future to be developed into a hub of international transit and other types of trade in northeast Asia, as well as materials supply and financial centre for the Eurasian continent. 
   Abundant water resources vital to a city and its industry, relatively small initial investment and plain topography for fast development are attracting the investors; foreign investment is guaranteed by law; and preference is granted to the acquisition of management of lucrative businesses such as tourism and hotel keeping.
   The zone will be divided into residential, industrial, public buildings and green areas. The green area will have a golf course, a recreation centre, a tourism park and a holidaymaking area. Tourists will be able to enjoy themselves here.

Mass Gymnastics of the DPRK

   Wonderful formation of gymnasts, ever-changing backdrop and vivacious and light music presenting a good harmony; gymnastic movements of gentle and refined rhythm displayed in each scene–these are the characteristics of the mass gymnastics of Korea.
   The history of mass gymnastics of Korea spans nearly 60 years, after the first mass gymnastics performance The Era of the Workers’ Party was held on September 19, Juche 50 (1961) in celebration of the Fourth Congress of the Workers’ Party of Korea. Since then, 35 works including Chollima Korea, and Under the Banner of the Workers’ Party have been produced and performed on thousands of occasions.
   In particular, the grand mass gymnastics and artistic performance, Ever-Victorious Workers’ Party of Korea (performed in October Juche 89 (2000) to celebrate the 55th anniversary of the founding of the Party) and Arirang (performed from April Juche 91 (2002) to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the birth of President Kim Il Sung), are known to the world as a work that sums up sports and art of the DPRK in the 20th century, the first masterpiece of the 21st century and a symbol of Korea. Both of them won the Kim Il Sung Prize.
   Enjoying the world attention, the 100, 000-strong Arirang was performed in May Day Stadium for more than 470 times until Juche 102 (2013), and over 14 million people enjoyed it. 
   Till today, those who saw it praise it as an “acme of sports and artistic performance in the world” and “the greatest of the great works.”
   Arirang was registered in the Guinness Book of World Records on August 14, Juche 96 (2007).
