Movement

North Korea exports goods, minerals, metallurgical products, manufactures and textiles. It imports petroleum, coaking coal, machinery and equipment, textiles and grains. This helps North Korea because it gives people jobs to make the product and others to export it. These products come from North Korea to other parts of the world, such as Spain, India, Greece, Israel and Oslo.
