Hyundai Asan Celebrates 20th Anniversary at Mt. Kumgang

2019/02/10 | 249 views | Permalink | Source


Tour operator Hyundai Asan said Thursday that it is celebrating its 20th anniversary in North Korea's Mt. Kumgang resort on Friday.

The company is sending 22 executives and staff to the scenic mountain resort by bus for the two-day event.

Hyundai Asan, which pioneered package tours to Mt. Kumgang, also sent staff there last November to mark their 20th anniversary.

Hyundai Group chairwoman Hyun Jeong-eun will not take part in the event this time, and it is unclear if any North Korean officials have been invited. 

A Hyundai Asan staffer said Thursday, "North Korea has often informed us only on the day of the ceremony who will attend".

It contacted North Korea through the inter-Korean liaison office on Jan. 25 for permission to host the event. The authorization raised hopes that the tours can resume in the foreseeable future.

They were stopped when a North Korean soldier shot a South Korean tourist there in 2008. But a Unification Ministry official said Thursday that the ceremony has "no relation with a resumption of package tours to Mt. Kumgang".
