North Korean Goods Available on the Net

'unizone.com' will be the first Internet site South Koreans can access to buy goods from North Korea. The site, which was launched last month, not only sells goods from North Korea but also aids in coordinating communication of separated families living in the two countries and gives access to culture and sports information.
Jung Yong-chul, previously in charge of the North Korea information bureau at the National Intelligence Service in South Korea, resigned early last year. He opened this site which connects South Korean customers and North Korean goods.
Jung said because North Korea continues to carry out their plans to establish a commercial distribution center in China as a port to export products, South Korean customers should be able to receive goods ordered in the space of a month if deliveries pass through Chinese distribution channels as planned.
