120,000 North Koreans to work in China

Hong Kong’s Singtao Daily reports, “News about North Korea’s export of 120,000 workers to China appeared for the first time on Chinese Mainland media. The first group of them, about 30 in number, have already worked for nearly 6 months in a hotel at Jiangsu’s Waxi Village, the richest village in China. They are mostly college graduates aged 20-odd, working in service trade with major job responsibilities of singing and dancing.

“Their monthly salary of about 6,000 yuan (US$942) was paid by their employer directly to the North Korean government.” They themselves only get 150 yuan (US$23.55) pocket money per day. According to reports, they provide wonderful singing and dancing services but live a dull and mythic life.

Guangzhou’s “South Weekend” reports: “Bai Yinyu, a North Korean girl working at Longxi International Hotel, Waxi Village is a graduate from a university in Pyongyang majoring in commerce. She is beautiful with white skin and is able to speak in standard Chinese about all the items in the menu.

“There are 30-odd North Korean girls all working along with Bai Yinyu at Longxi International Hotel, Waxi Village. The first batch of them arrived at the end of last year. They all live together in a collective dormitory.

“A person responsible for propaganda in Waxi Village confirmed that those girls were North Korea’s export of labourers to China. It is inappropriate to reveal their number and North Korea requires that no photographs or video recording shall be taken of nor press interview be made with them.

“Those North Korean girls are but the first batch of the large number of exported labourers. According to South Korean media, North Korea will send 120,000 workers to work in Dandong, Tumen and other areas in China. China has already made a plan to receive large numbers of North Korean labourers.”

“This is an unprecedented large scale,” said Cheng Yujie, a Chinese expert on North Korea. It is a major measure adopted by North Korean new leader Kim Jong Un after consolidation of his political power and is perhaps a sign that North Korea begins to follow the line of economic opening up.

The North Korean girls’ major jobs are singing and dancing performance, but they also serve as waitresses when they do not give performance. They sing Korean and Chinese songs well with good voice comparable with hot Chinese and Korean stars.

The hotel and its customers are well satisfied with their services. Compared with rural girls employed from Anhui and other places, they are much better in their style of conversation, manners and appearance. According to the hotel, North Korean girls have made the hotel more attractive.

Due to the reputation of their songs and dances, quite a few rich people came to enjoy their exotic performance. Local people also want those girls’ services when they hold wedding banquets.

Author of the book "Tiananmen's Tremendous Achievements" about how with the help of Tiananmen Protests, talented scholars with moral integrity seized power in the Party and state and brought prosperity to China.

There are also some changes for improvements of style. The new parts are Chapters 12-19 on events in China after the first edition was published: The fierce power struggle for succession between reformists and conservatives; Xi Jinping winning all elders’ support during his mysterious disappearance for 2 weeks in early September, 2012; and Xi Jinping Cyclone. Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.

  2. Is it really a sign that North Korea will open itself economically or just a new strategy of the government to earn money?
