    Good Afternoon, please allow me to introduce myself.

    I am University educated from near Manchester in the UK with skills both in Asian Languages and the global trade industry. I spent a lot of time after University working in e-commerce and product sourcing which in turn has given me a network in a huge range of valuable contacts in trade. After a lot of work with Chinese manufacturing, it was not long before I turned to look at the untouched nation of the DPRK to investigate the potential implications of engaging in business.

    Through a lot of hard work and diplomacy, I am able to source all different types of North Korean goods, such as beer, soju, cigarettes and candy snacks. The unfortunate problem I have is that I have been unsuccessful in finding an investor that I can trust. I had a previous Iranian based investor living in London who was willing to put forward £150,000 to source stock to Europe, however he decided to pull out of our deal last minute.
    The banks are rather unforgiving in this matter (as you can expect) they would like nothing to do with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

    If anybody is willing to cooperate together with myself, the following time-scales would apply:

    2-4 weeks negotiation of products of sourcing within the DPRK with my contacts.
    2 weeks to get the items from the DPRK into China.
    4 weeks shipping from China to Europe/America/ where ever required.

    If anybody is interested, please get in contact with me via PM or post.


    Enclosed is a picture from my last business trip.

    Guys this thread is toxic and let me tell you why...Even if the OP is legit you can get
    into a load of trouble selling DPRK goods within the UK, USA, and other countries
    who have sanctions on them.

    I am not a lawyer, but just don't mess around with it....

    Only certain goods that are listed on a prohibited list would be covered by sanctions. Without doing some research you should be able to get clarification on what is allowed, what licenses are required and whats the maximum amount you can import per license.

    In saying that I can buy cigarettes and beer in Lidl. What unique products are available in North Korea and what sort of prices are we looking at ?

    What is the potential market for that? Do you have customers who want to buy North Korean beer? Do you expect it to be seeked like Cuban cigars? I'm just asking for you to rethink those questions, not personally interested in selling NK goods.

    I'm not asking for £150,000. I am merely stating my last investor was ready to put £150,000 onto the table previously.


    I do have some higher-end clientèle in Tokyo and New York who would love to stock my source-able alcohol. There are economic sanctions in place banning the import of DPRK goods into Japan. This however is not applicable to Europe and the US is more lenient on this matter as exports from DPRK to US are not allowed, however if the goods go from China/ elsewhere, this is perfectly fine.

    I have done my research on this, otherwise it would not be a viable business. Please by all means too look at the UN Security Council Resolution 1874 and the resolutions following that, it contains sanction information regarding imports and exports of luxury goods.

    Fuck no. I'm not going anywhere near the DPRK. However, I'm interested in North Korea, so I totally think that photo is cool. Got any from the DMZ?

    Although catalogue is not finalised as I still have to negotiate with business delegates of the DPRK,
    Pricing would be typically £2-£5 per carton of tobacco depending on brand.
    £3-£5 for Beer
    £15-£50 depending on Soju brand/ size.
    Exotic cobra and snake bodied spirits will be £200+

    Mate you look far too young to remember what happened to the last guy who traded with a sanctioned country from the UK, he is picking up the soap while all the inmates around him are grinning and pulling their plonks.

    P.s. our glorious leader has interesting and novel ways of killing people, I fail to see what north Korea has to offer that can not be had anywhere else.

    I do not know, however that is rather hilarious.

    I am nearing the ripe end of a quatre of a century, twenty five years of age. I may look young, but it does not mean that I have not been productive after education.

    Whilst I have not met Dennis himself, the last time I travelled to the DPRK back in April, I did spend many a night drinking with Dennis Rodmann's personal interpretor. Mr Sim is a rather humouous man who spent his youth actually living in Egypt whilst his father worked at the DPRK Embassy. He told me that he found Dennis' appearance rather... peculiar in the choice of clothing/jewellery. He even humourously reinacted the "Happy Birthday song" whilst drunk in "Dennis' strange deep vocal tone."

    It might be beneficial to state your previous experience with importing goods into the UK and Europe.
    Do you have a company already set up?
    What are you looking for exactly, investment or a partner?
    In all honesty unless you can prove that you have the contacts in place and have at least imported £10000 worth of goods into the UK from DPRK previously, then I don't think you will get much interest at this stage.

    I think spirits and cigarreetes have very high special taxes in the UK. Your products would be premium products, which means high margin low volume. So why would you stock up 150k upfront?

    Just buy like 3 volumes of cigarretes and 10 bottles of beer and see if you can sell them. If you can't at least your loss was like 500 quid
