朝韩开城工业园即将重开

South Korea and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) agreed to fully reopen the Kaesong industrial complex next Monday after agreeing on institutional tools to develop the factory park in a progressive way, Seoul's Unification Ministry said Wednesday.

After marathon talks that lasted for around 20 hours from Tuesday morning, Seoul and Pyongyang announced a joint statement on when to reopen it and how to manage it.

"Institutional tools were actually provided through this second meeting of the joint committee to stably develop the Kaesong complex into an internationally competitive one," the Ministry of Unification said in a statement.

The ministry said the agreement will contribute to trust- building and sustainable progress in inter-Korean relations, noting that the Kaesong industrial zone's constructive development got back into its stride.

Under the agreement, the two sides will reopen the joint factory park in the DPRK's border town of Kaesong on Sept. 16 after conducting a trail run. The factory park, which has been suspended for more than five months, will be normalized right before the three-day Chuseok holiday that falls on Sept. 19 this year.

The two sides agreed on how to set up and run the standing secretariat of the joint management committee for the Kaesong industrial zone. The joint committee, which will be in charge of running the factory park, will give Seoul an equal say on the zone, which had been managed solely by Pyongyang in the past.

The secretariat, which will provide administrative support to the joint committee and four subcommittees, starts to be operated within this month.

The two sides also agreed to form a joint arbitration committee that will settle business disputes within the Kaesong industrial zone. The committee, which will be composed of one chairman and four members each from Seoul and Pyongyang, would be set up within three months.
 

简明释义:北京时间9月11日上午消息 BBC报道,据首尔官员透露,朝韩已达成协议,将于下周重启开城合作工业园区。韩国统一部表示,双方的谈判延续到深夜,最终确定9月16日为重启日。开城工业园区位于朝鲜境内,有123家韩国人开的工厂,这些工厂雇用了5万名朝鲜人。开城工业园区是平壤重要收入来源之一,作为条件,平壤同意向海外投资者开放开城园区。韩国方面认为,这将有助于阻止朝鲜再次关闭该园区。
