The GIC, a symbol of peace and prosperity on the Korean Peninsula, should be reignited!

The GIC will contribute to breaking the deadlock in inter-Korean relations and reviving the peace on the Korean Peninsula in Northeast Asia. We cannot just wait for the era of peace to come without making efforts to resolve repeated military tension and conflicts between the two Koreas. For the GIC’s stable operation, an exception to sanctions is necessary.

The GIC, built in North Korea in 2003, has been shut-down in February 2016. However, the GIC, operated for 13 years, serves as a buffer against military tension on the Korean peninsula and contributes to peace building through inter-Korean economic cooperation. The GIC is a successful case of converting military confrontation areas into the zone of peace and prosperity.

The GIC was where small examples of unification occur between 60,000 South and North Korean workers as they interact and understand each other’s differences on a daily basis. The GIC is a place where the two Koreas share mutual benefits through complementary economic cooperation.

The GIC, a symbol of peace and prosperity on the Korean Peninsula, should be reignited!

We call on the United Nations Security Council (UNSC: Sanctions Committee on North Korea) to make an exception to sanctions for the Gaeseong Industrial Complex (GIC), the inter-Korean industrial complex.

개성공단 대북제재 예외를 요구한다 !  

평화와 번영의 상징인 개성공단은 다시 빛나야 합니다! 개성공단은 교착된 남북관계를 타개하고 한반도와 동북아 지역의 평화를 되살리는 실마리가 될 것입니다. 쳇바퀴처럼 돌아오는 남북 간 군사적 긴장과 충돌을 해결하려는 노력 없이 저절로 평화의 시대가 올 것이라고 우리는 기대할 수 없습니다. 개성공단의 안정적인 운영을 위해 제재 예외는 필수적입니다.  

개성공단은 2003년 남북이 함께 북측에 세운 산업단지로, 2016년 2월 중단되었습니다. 13년 동안 운영돼왔던 개성공단은 한반도의 군사적 긴장을 구조적으로 막아주는 제도적 안전장치였으며, 경제협력을 통해 평화구축에 기여하였습니다. 개성공단은 군사적 대결 공간을 평화와 번영의 공간으로 전환시킨 성공적인 사례입니다.  

개성공단은 6만 여명의 남북 근로자들이 교류를 통해 매일매일 서로의 다름을 이해하며 작은 통일의 사례들을 축적해가는 곳이었습니다. 개성공단은 남북이 상호보완의 경제협력을 통해 상호이익을 실현하는 곳이었습니다.  


평화와 번영의 상징인 개성공단은 다시 빛나야 합니다 ! !  

우리는 UN 안전보장이사회(대북제재위원회)에 개성공단 대북제재 예외를 요구합니다.
