Mr. Felix Abt, an entrepreneur and business affairs specialist on North Korea and Vietnam, participated in a recent webinar entitled, "Viewing the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) from Within".

Mr. Abt was one of the first foreign entrepreneurs to seek to do business in contemporary North Korea, where he lived between 2002–09, developing and operating businesses (power generation & transmission, modernization of mines, pharmaceutical production & retail, garment production, IT & e-commerce). He was also a co-founder and president of the first foreign chamber of commerce in Pyongyang and a co-founder and director of North Korea’s first business school. At the request of North and South Koreans he also got involved in the negotiations and preparations of joint North-South business projects (mineral water production on Mount Paekdu, dairy production in the North etc.). Based on his experiences, he has written books that show complementary perspectives to those the Western world is used to read.
