N.Korea's Trade with China Hits Record

North Korea's trade with China is likely to hit a record this year, in another sign of North Korea's deepening economic reliance on its sole ally.

According to the Korea International Trade Association, North Korea's trade with China was valued at US$4.96 billion in the first 10 months of the year, up 6.3 percent from a year earlier.

The report suggests that full-year trade volume is likely to surpass the current record of $5.62 billion set last year.
