Maritime trade and economic development in North Korea

César Ducruet, In Joo Yoon

The North Korean economy is experiencing a deepening economic and political crisis since the early 1990s. Although North Korea is not commonly seen as a shipping nation, its major cities are coastal, and it hosts nine international trading ports. However, little is known about the role of maritime transport in its development. This article uses vessel movement data to reconstitute the maritime network linking North Korean ports and other ports, over the period 1977-2021. Besides the drastic connectivity loss, main results conclude about a limited role of maritime transport in economic development, except for its participation to China’s increasing grip on North Korea. This research brings new knowledge about North Korea and contributes to advance maritime network studies in general.
