節目介紹 / Introduction
朝鮮東北的羅先特別市,是朝鮮最早成立的經濟特區,位處中國、朝鮮及俄羅斯三國接壤地帶,擁有絕佳的地利優勢,不論是本土經濟活動,或外國企業投資項目,都正持續發展中。



水產加工是羅先主要的經濟活動之一。秀彩峰水產事業所的員工每年6至10月都會忙得不可開交,抓緊時間為魷魚除內臟、剝皮、按重量分類和作簡單的防腐處理後將魷魚出口,以為羅先賺取每年100萬美元的外匯。



除了本土的經濟活動外,羅先特別市十分歡迎海外企業投資。俄羅斯在羅先羅津港租借了一個碼頭的49年使用權;中國修建了連接元汀口岸和羅津港的公路,並派遣了不少培訓人員和儀器到羅先教導當地的農民如何提高農產品的收成。



朝鮮領導人金正恩上台後,在各方面進行變革,試圖改變朝鮮的國家風貌,其中一個為國際間所熟悉的舉動,便是成立了一個以大膽、新潮的西方表演風格見稱的國家級女子樂團︰牡丹峰樂團。本節目在牡丹峰樂團的表演伴隨下,一層一層解開羅先特別市的神秘面紗,揭示這個朝鮮最開放的城市不為人知的一面。




In the extreme northeast of North Korea, there is a rarely mentioned city called Rason. With its advantageous geographical location near the borders of China and Russia, Rason Special City was among the first to become North Korea’s special economic zone in 1991. Domestic economic reforms and foreign investment projects are in full swing in this special area.



Aquatic products processing activity contributed much to the domestic economic development of Rason Special City. Workers of Suchobong Aquatic Products Company worked extremely hard to process the aquatic products to be ready for export in return for an annual foreign earning of USD 1 million for North Korea.



Rason Special City welcomes foreign investment. Among the foreign investors, Russia had leased a pier on Rajin Port for 49 years, while China had constructed a highway connecting Wonjeong Customs and Rajin Port. China also sent experts and modern equipment to Rason Special City to teach the local farmers how to improve farming methods and increase yields.



Since Kim Jong-un became the leader of North Korea, he had been trying to show a new and modern image of the country to the world. Though the diplomatic relations are still tense, Rason Special City is conducting economic reforms at its own pace. Following the entertaining and fashionable music performed by Moranbong Band, an all-female westernised band set up by Kim Jong-un, the programme reveals the current situation in this experimenting economic zone.
