Hong Kong Paper: 94,000 N. Koreans Working in China

More than 94-thousand North Koreans are reportedly working in China.
 
The Hong Kong-based Phoenix News reported on Monday that North Koreans are crossing the Yalu River to seek jobs in Dandong, the largest Chinese city on the border with North Korea. It added that Chinese people in Dandong also seek trade across the border.
 
The report said that this bilateral trading and people-to-people exchanges have occurred since China’s 1978 economic reform, but the North’s nuclear development has put the border city into great uncertainty.
 
Quoting data by the China National Tourism Administration, the broadcaster said that the number of North Korean workers in China increased from about 50-thousand in 2006, when the North conducted its first nuclear test, to 94-thousand-200 in 2015, earning the regime billions of yuan, or hundreds of billions of won, a year.
