ABSTRACT
The article discusses the significance of the trip made by North Korean leader Kim Jong to China to conduct an observation on the economic reforms of the country. The trip will not create any major economic transformation. Instead, it reflects the economic impact of the U.S. crackdown on the finances of the country. Jong possibly seeks additional aid and economic advice from Japan as well as some political support.
