“We will boost friendship and cooperation… with the countries, peoples and international organizations that are friendly towards us under the ideal of independence, peace and friendship.”
- Pak Kyong-Il, Chairman
With the establishment of the NZ-DPRK Society in 1974, North Korea reciprocated two years later with the Pyongyang-based NGO, the Korea-New Zealand Friendship Society (1976). Over the decades a strong partnership has developed based on mutual trust, respect, and friendship. The Korea-New Zealand Society is run under the Korean Committee for Cultural Relations with Foreign Countries (CCRFC) umbrella with staff also servicing Australia and the wider Pacific region. The Korea-New Zealand Society is currently led by Chairman Pak Kyong-Il and General Secretary Hwang Sung Chol.
“I am very much looking forward to future joint works conducive to the development of the friendly bi-lateral relations.”
- Hwang Sung Chol, General Secretary
