“80 percent of annual rainfall occurs in July and August. Poor farming practices and deforestation of the hills means severe flooding leading to many deaths each year (these people aren’t dead, they’re just acting). If this is what happens to people, imagine the damage to crops and livestock, and even rice can drown.” | Image: Tom Morrison

Extended interviews with academics, analysts and technical specialists with real experience of institutional and developmental environments in North Korea are rare beasts indeed. This summer we were honored here at Sino-NK to post the following fascinating and deep interview with the renowned agronomist Tom Morrison. Our economics analyst Matthew Bates (who also works as petroleum industry analyst for Aminex PLC) as well as undertaking the interview published it in three separate posts on Sino-NK. We at the Yongusil/Research Room have claimed ownership of this valuable material and to celebrate the launch of Sino-NK’s new digital home and format as well as to celebrate the crystallization of our Yongusil concept present  it here for the first time as a single pdf for your further delectation and ease of use. — Robert Winstanley-Chesters, Director of Research
