After the period of some deterioration the cooperation between Chinese Peoples Republic and the DPRK in the economic and trade field since 2000 quickly started to regain its previous scale and activity. By the end of the first decade of the XXI century China has become the main trade partner of North Korea as well as the biggest investor in the economy of the DPRK. This situation caused serious concern among many South Korean experts, politicians and became a hot topic of discussion in the mass-media. They worry that North Korea because of its excessive dependence in economy on China may lose freedom of action in the field of politics and this may hinder future prospects of the unification of the Korean peninsula. The worries of South Korea appear to be partly justified though seriously exaggerated. However due to a number of reasons DPRK has no other choice but keep intensifying its cooperation with China. The passive position of Seoul and absence of serious prospects for appearing any other country which may could serve a counterbalance to Chinese influence allow us to predict that the economic dependence of DPRK on China will continue to grow in the near future.
Key words: PRC, DPRK, China, North Korea, trade and economic ties, cooperation, investment, trade volume, dependence, Chinese-North Korean relations.
