North Korea Checks Out Sweden

A North Korean delegation is visiting Sweden to learn the basics of doing business in a capitalist economy, according to a news report by Ekot, a Swedish news magazine broadcast by a public radio station. The delegation includes members of North Korean universities, government-owned export companies and the North Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The delegation was invited by the International Council of Swedish Industry and sponsored by Sweden's international aid agency, SIDA.

You can read more about the visit on the English-language Swedish news site The Local and Washington Post's news blog BlogPost.
