What Do We Export to North Korea?
The U.S. has exported very little to North Korea this year, although that hasn't always been the case. Tensions are reaching new heights, but U.S. exporters are still allowed to export to North Korea as long as the customer is not a person on the Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List, nor a member of the Government of North Korea or Workers' Party of Korea. Exporters must also receive a license from the Bureau of Industry and Security. However, with such an isolated and restrictive government, the export market for North Korea is scarce and this year it's dwindled to a trickle.
